d.mix.dists.func {ConnMatTools} | R Documentation |

## Returns probability density function (PDF) for a mix of marked and unmarked individuals

### Description

This function returns a probability density function (PDF) for scores for a mix of marked and unmarked individuals with known fraction of marked individuals. The distributions for marked individuals and for unmarked individuals must be known.

### Usage

```
d.mix.dists.func(d.unmarked, d.marked)
```

### Arguments

`d.unmarked` |
A function representing the PDF of unmarked individuals. Must be normalized so that it integrates to 1 for the function to work properly. |

`d.marked` |
A function representing the PDF of marked individuals. Must be normalized so that it integrates to 1 for the function to work properly. |

### Value

A function representing the PDF of observations drawn from the mixed
distribution of marked and unmarked individuals. The function takes two
arguments: `p.marked`

, the fraction of marked individuals in the
distribution; and `obs`

, a vector of observed score values.
