Multivariate Contaminated Normal Distribution

Description

Probability density function and random number generation for the multivariate contaminated normal distribution.

Usage

dCN(x, mu = rep(0,p), Sigma, alpha = 0.99, eta = 1.01)
rCN(n, mu = rep(0,p), Sigma, alpha = 0.99, eta = 1.01)  

Arguments

x

either a vector of length p or a matrix with p columns, being p = ncol(Sigma), representing the coordinates of the point(s) where the density must be evaluated

mu

either a vector of length p, representing the mean value, or (except for rCN) a matrix whose rows represent different mean vectors; if it is a matrix, its dimensions must match those of x

Sigma

a symmetric positive-definite matrix representing the scale matrix of the distribution; a vector of length 1 is also allowed (in this case, p = 1 is set)

alpha

proportion of good observations; it must be a number between 0 and 1

eta

degree of contamination; it should be a number greater than 1

n

the number of random vectors to be generated

Value

dCN returns a vector of density values; rCN returns a matrix of n rows of random vectors
