bzip.b {bzinb}R Documentation

The bivariate zero-inflated Poisson distribution (B)

Description

random generation (rbzip.b), maximum likelihood estimation (bzip.b), and log-likelihood. (lik.bzip.b) for the bivariate zero-inflated Poisson (B) distribution with parameters equal to (m0, m1, m2, p1, p2, p3, p4).

Usage

lik.bzip.b(xvec, yvec, m0, m1, m2, p1, p2, p3, p4, param = NULL)

rbzip.b(n, m0, m1, m2, p1, p2, p3, p4, param = NULL)

bzip.b(xvec, yvec, tol = 1e-06, initial = NULL, showFlag = FALSE,
  maxiter = 200)

Arguments

xvec, yvec

a pair of BZIP (B) 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. must be positive.

p1, p2, p3, p4

proportions summing up to 1 (p1 + p2 + p3 + p4 = 1). p1 is the probability of both latent Poisson variables being observed. p2 is the probability of only the first Poisson variables being observed. p3 is the probability of only the second Poisson variables being observed, and p4 is the probability of both Poisson variables being dropped out.

param

a vector of parameters ((m0, m1, m2, p1, p2, p3, p4)). Either param or individual parameters (m0, m1, m2, p1, p2, p3, p4) need to be provided.

n

number of observations.

tol

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

initial

starting value of param for EM algorithm, a vector of nine values.

showFlag

if TRUE, the updated parameter estimates for each iteration are printed out. If a positive integer, the updated parameter estimates for iterations greater than showFlag are printed out.

maxiter

maximum number of iterations allowed. tol = 50000 by default.

# generating a pair of random vectors
set.seed(1)
data1 <- rbzip.b(n = 20, m0 = 1, m1 = 1, m2 = 1, 
                p1 = 0.5, p2 = 0.2, p3 = 0.2, p4 = 0.1)

lik.bzip.b(xvec = data1[, 1], yvec = data1[ ,2], 
          m0 = 1, m1 = 1, m2 = 1, 
          p1 = 0.5, p2 = 0.2, p3 = 0.2, p4 = 0.1)

bzip.b(xvec = data1[,1], yvec = data1[,2], showFlag = FALSE)
