Discrete Weibull {BDgraph}R Documentation

The Discrete Weibull Distribution (Type 1)

Description

Density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the discrete Weibull distribution (type I) with parameters q and β.

Usage

ddweibull( x, q = exp( -1 ), beta = 1, zero = TRUE )
pdweibull( x, q = exp( -1 ), beta = 1, zero = TRUE )
qdweibull( p, q = exp( -1 ), beta = 1, zero = TRUE )
rdweibull( n, q = exp( -1 ), beta = 1, zero = TRUE )

Arguments

x

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

q, beta

shape and scale parameters, the latter defaulting to 1.

zero

logical; if TRUE (default), the support contains 0; FALSE otherwise.

n

number of observations. If length(n) > 1, the length is taken to be the number required.

Details

The discrete Weibull distribution has density given by

f(x) = q^x^β - q^(x+1)^β, x = 0, 1, 2, …

And for the case zero = FALSE:

f(x) = q^(x-1)^β - q^x^β, x = 1, 2, …

Cumulative distribution function

F(x) = 1-q^(x+1)^β

And for the case zero = FALSE, x+1 should replaced by x.

Value

ddweibull gives the density, pdweibull gives the distribution function, qdweibull gives the quantile function, and rdweibull generates random values.

Examples

n <- 1000
q <- 0.4
beta <- 0.8

rdw <- rdweibull( n = n, q = q, beta = beta )

plot( prop.table( table( rdw ) ), type = "h", col = "gray50" )

x <- 0:max( rdw )

lines( x, ddweibull( x = x, q = q, beta = beta ), type = "o", col = "blue", lwd = 2 )

hist( pdweibull( x = rdw, q = q, beta = beta ) )

plot( ecdf( rdw ) )
lines( x, pdweibull( x, q = q, beta = beta ), col = "blue", lwd = 2, type = "s" )
