VaryingGaussianMarkovChainDistribution.plates_to_parent(index, plates)[source]

Computes the plates of this node with respect to a parent.

If this node has plates (…), the latent dimensionality is D and the number of time instances is N, the plates with respect to the parents are:

mu: (…) Lambda: (…) A: (…,N-1,D) v: (…,N-1,D)
index : int

The index of the parent node to use.
