historical_normal {bayesCT} | R Documentation |

Wrapper function for historical data from normal outcome.

historical_normal( mu0_treatment = NULL, sd0_treatment = NULL, N0_treatment = NULL, mu0_control = NULL, sd0_control = NULL, N0_control = NULL, discount_function = "identity", alpha_max = 1, fix_alpha = FALSE, weibull_scale = 0.135, weibull_shape = 3, method = "fixed", .data = NULL )

`mu0_treatment` |
scalar. Mean of the historical treatment group. |

`sd0_treatment` |
scalar. Standard deviation of the historical treatment group. |

`N0_treatment` |
scalar. Number of observations of the historical treatment group. |

`mu0_control` |
scalar. Mean of the historical control group. |

`sd0_control` |
scalar. Standard deviation of the historical control group. |

`N0_control` |
scalar. Number of observations of the historical control group. |

`discount_function` |
character. If incorporating historical data, specify
the discount function. Currently supports the Weibull function
( |

`alpha_max` |
scalar. Maximum weight the discount function can apply. Default is 1. For a two-arm trial, users may specify a vector of two values where the first value is used to weight the historical treatment group and the second value is used to weight the historical control group. |

`fix_alpha` |
logical. Fix alpha at alpha_max? Default value is FALSE. |

`weibull_scale` |
scalar. Scale parameter of the Weibull discount function used to compute alpha, the weight parameter of the historical data. Default value is 0.135. For a two-arm trial, users may specify a vector of two values where the first value is used to estimate the weight of the historical treatment group and the second value is used to estimate the weight of the historical control group. Not used when discount_function = "identity". |

`weibull_shape` |
scalar. Shape parameter of the Weibull discount function used to compute alpha, the weight parameter of the historical data. Default value is 3. For a two-arm trial, users may specify a vector of two values where the first value is used to estimate the weight of the historical treatment group and the second value is used to estimate the weight of the historical control group. Not used when discount_function = "identity". |

`method` |
character. Analysis method with respect to estimation of the weight
paramter alpha. Default method " |

`.data` |
NULL. stores the proportion of control and treatment, please do not fill it in. |

a list with historical data for control and treatment group with the discount function.
