prior_functions_methods {BayesTools}R Documentation

Creates generics for common statistical functions

Description

Density (pdf / lpdf), distribution function (cdf / ccdf), quantile function (quant), random generation (rng), mean, standard deviation (sd), and marginal variants of the functions (mpdf, mlpf, mcdf, mccdf, mquant).

Usage

rng(x, ...)

cdf(x, ...)

ccdf(x, ...)

quant(x, ...)

lpdf(x, ...)

pdf(x, ...)

mcdf(x, ...)

mccdf(x, ...)

mquant(x, ...)

mlpdf(x, ...)

mpdf(x, ...)

Arguments

x

main argument

...

unused arguments

Value

pdf (mpdf) and lpdf (mlpdf) give the (marginal) density and the log of (marginal) density, cdf (mcdf) and ccdf (mccdf) give the (marginal) distribution and the complement of (marginal) distribution function, quant (mquant) give the (marginal) quantile function, and rng generates random deviates for an object of class 'prior'.

The pdf function proceeds to PDF graphics device if x is a character.
