LR.upper {CLAST} R Documentation

## Calculates likelihood ratio based upper limit

### Description

Calculates approximate upper limit for a probability from x successes out of n binary trials based on the signed root likelihood ratio.

### Usage

LR.upper(x, n, a = 0.05, epsilon = 1e-18)


### Arguments

 x number of successes (integer between 0 and n inclusive) n number of binary trials a coverage error of limit epsilon Tolerance supplied to uniroot.

### Value

A numeric values between 0 and 1

### Examples

# Find approximate 99% upper limit for probability based on 20 successes from 55 trials.
LR.upper(20,55,a=0.01)
# Find exact (95%) upper limit for probability from all successes.
LR.upper(5,5)
