TwoSampleBernoulli.Design {BayesDIP} | R Documentation |

Calculate the minimum planned sample size under an admissible design. The users decide the power and type-I-error, and pick the efficacy and futility boundaries. If there are no admissible design based on controlled type-I-error, then default to output the designs with the lowest type-I-error and at least the user-defined (e.g. 80%) power.

`prior` |
A list of length 3 containing the distributional information of the prior. The first element is a number specifying the type of prior. Options are DIP ; Beta(a,b), where a = shape, b = scale
The second and third elements of the list are the parameters a and b, respectively. |

`nmin` |
The start searching total sample size for two treatment groups. |

`nmax` |
The stop searching total sample size for two treatment groups. |

`p1` |
The response rate of the new treatment. |

`p2` |
The response rate of the compared treatment. |

`d` |
The target improvement (minimal clinically meaningful difference). |

`ps` |
The efficacy boundary (upper boundary). |

`pf` |
The futility boundary (lower boundary). |

`power` |
The power to achieve. |

`t1error` |
The controlled type-I-error. |

`alternative` |
less (lower values imply greater efficacy) or greater (larger values imply greater efficacy). |

`seed` |
The seed for simulations. |

`sim` |
The number of simulations. |

A list of the arguments with method and computed elements
