bp {bzinb}R Documentation

The bivariate poisson distribution

Description

random generation (rbp), maximum likelihood estimation (bp), and log-likelihood. (lik.bp) for the bivariate Poisson distribution with parameters equal to (m0, m1, m2).

Usage

lik.bp(xvec, yvec, m0, m1, m2, param = NULL)

rbp(n, m0, m1, m2, param = NULL)

bp(xvec, yvec, tol = 1e-06)

Arguments

xvec, yvec

a pair of bp random vectors. nonnegative integer vectors. If not integers, they will be rounded to the nearest integers.

m0, m1, m2

mean parameters of the Poisson variables. They must be positive.

param

a vector of parameters ((m0, m1, m2)). Either param or individual parameters (m0, m1, m2) need to be provided.

n

number of observations.

tol

tolerance for judging convergence. tol = 1e-8 by default.

Examples

# generating a pair of random vectors
set.seed(1)
data1 <- rbp(n = 20, m0 = 1, m1 = 1, m2 = 1)

lik.bp(xvec = data1[, 1], yvec = data1[ ,2], 
          m0 = 1, m1 = 1, m2 = 1) 

bp(xvec = data1[,1], yvec = data1[,2])
