dnorm_n {bbmle} R Documentation

## Normal distribution with profiled-out standard deviation

### Description

Returns the Normal probability densities for a distribution with the given mean values and the standard deviation equal to the root mean-squared deviation between x and mu

### Usage

dnorm_n(x, mean, log = FALSE)


### Arguments

 x numeric vector of data mean numeric vector or mean values log logical: return the log-density?

### Details

This is a convenience function, designed for the case where you're trying to compute a MLE for the mean but don't want to bother estimating the MLE for the standard deviation at the same time

### Value

Numeric vector of probability densities

### Examples

set.seed(101)
x <- rnorm(5,mean=3,sd=2)
dnorm_n(x,mean=3,log=TRUE)
