dmvnorm {birdring}R Documentation

Multivariate Normal Density and Random Deviates - this function is a copy of the function in the package mvtnorm

Description

These functions provide the density function and a random number generator for the multivariate normal distribution with mean equal to mean and covariance matrix sigma.

Usage

dmvnorm(x, mean, sigma, log = FALSE)

Arguments

x

Vector or matrix of quantiles. If x is a matrix, each row is taken to be a quantile.

mean

Mean vector, default is rep(0, length = ncol(x)).

sigma

Covariance matrix, default is diag(ncol(x)).

log

Logical; if TRUE, densities d are given as log(d).

Details

This function is copied to birdring from mvtnorm. If you use this function, please use and cite the original function from the package mvtnorm!
