truncnorm {bayess} R Documentation

## Random simulator for the truncated normal distribution

### Description

This is a plain random generator for a normal variate \mathcal{N}(\mu,\tau^2) truncated to (a,b), using the inverse cdf qnorm. It may thus be imprecise for extreme values of the bounds.

### Usage

truncnorm(n, mu, tau2, a, b)


### Arguments

 n number of simulated variates mu mean of the original normal tau2 variance of the original normal a lower bound b upper bound

### Value

a sample of real numbers over (a,b) with size n
