```Hi Bugs users,
I have tried to find some SAS programs to diagnose the convergence of BUGS output in SAS. But I didn't find this kind of scripts. Then I decide to write one. I chose the Geweke and Yu & Mykland methods. When calculting the Geweke, I used the spectral density from PROC SPECTRA which depends on the choice of kernel. I am not familiar with time series. Then I used the quadratic kernel. However, I got quite different answers with R-CODA. I attached the scripts with this email. And I need your help on how to choose the weight in proc spectra. I really appreciate any help you can provide on this.
Thanks,

/*These codes have been written to perform convergence diagnosis in SAS.

Two statistics were calculated - Geweke (1992) and Yu and Mykland (1994) with
D statistics (Brook, 1996, cf. Brooks & Roberts, 1995).

Geweke falls in (-1.96, 1.96) and D falls in (.5 +/- Za/2*sqrt(1/4n)) mean convergence.
