observ_powerexp {BLModel}R Documentation

Example of distribution of views – power exponential distribution

Description

Function observ_powerexp computes density of power exponential distribution of views using the formula
f(x) = c_k*\exp(- ((x-q)^{T}*Σ^{-1}*(x-q))^{β}/2),
where c_k is a normalization constant (depends on the dimension of x and q) and Σ is the dispersion matrix.

Usage

observ_powerexp(x, q, covmat, beta = 0.6)

Arguments

x

Data points matrix which collects in rows coordinates of points in which distribution density is computed.

q

Vector of investor's views.

covmat

Covariance matrix of the distribution; dispersion matrix Σ is computed from covmat.

beta

Shape parameter of the power exponential distribution.

Value

function returns a vector of distribution densities in data points x.
