pnbd_nocov_DERT( r, alpha_0, s, beta_0, continuous_discount_factor, vX, vT_x, vT_cal ) pnbd_staticcov_DERT( r, alpha_0, s, beta_0, continuous_discount_factor, vX, vT_x, vT_cal, mCov_life, mCov_trans, vCovParams_life, vCovParams_trans )

`r` |
shape parameter of the Gamma distribution of the purchase process. The smaller r, the stronger the heterogeneity of the purchase process |

`alpha_0` |
rate parameter of the Gamma distribution of the purchase process |

`s` |
shape parameter of the Gamma distribution for the lifetime process. The smaller s, the stronger the heterogeneity of customer lifetimes |

`beta_0` |
rate parameter for the Gamma distribution for the lifetime process. |

`continuous_discount_factor` |
continuous discount factor to use |

`vX` |
Frequency vector of length n counting the numbers of purchases. |

`vT_x` |
Recency vector of length n. |

`vT_cal` |
Vector of length n indicating the total number of periods of observation. |

`mCov_life` |
Matrix containing the covariates data affecting the lifetime process. One column for each covariate. |

`mCov_trans` |
Matrix containing the covariates data affecting the transaction process. One column for each covariate. |

`vCovParams_life` |
Vector of estimated parameters for the lifetime covariates. |

`vCovParams_trans` |
Vector of estimated parameters for the transaction covariates. |

`mCov_trans`

is a matrix containing the covariates data of
the time-invariant covariates that affect the transaction process.
Each column represents a different covariate. For every column a gamma parameter
needs to added to `vCovParams_trans`

at the respective position.

`mCov_life`

is a matrix containing the covariates data of
the time-invariant covariates that affect the lifetime process.
Each column represents a different covariate. For every column a gamma parameter
needs to added to `vCovParams_life`

at the respective position.

Returns a vector with the DERT for each customer.
