Usage

Truncate(object, ...)
## S4 method for signature 'AbscontDistribution'
Truncate(object, lower = -Inf, upper = Inf)
## S4 method for signature 'DiscreteDistribution'
Truncate(object, lower= -Inf, upper = Inf)
## S4 method for signature 'LatticeDistribution'
Truncate(object, lower= -Inf, upper = Inf)
## S4 method for signature 'UnivarLebDecDistribution'
Truncate(object, lower = -Inf, upper = Inf,
withSimplify = getdistrOption("simplifyD"))


Arguments

 object distribution object ... not yet used; takes up lower, upper, withSimplify. lower numeric; lower truncation point upper numeric; upper truncation point withSimplify logical; is result to be piped through a call to simplifyD?

Value

the corresponding distribution of the truncated random variable

Methods

Truncate

signature(object = "AbscontDistribution"): returns the distribution of min(upper,max(X,lower)) conditioned to lower<=X<=upper, if X is distributed according to object; if slot .logExact of argument object is TRUE and if either there is only one-sided truncation or both truncation points lie on the same side of the median, we use this representation to enhance the range of applicability, in particular, for slot r, we profit from Peter Dalgaard's clever log-tricks as indicated in https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/2008-September/174321.html. To this end we use the internal functions (i.e.; non exported to namespace) .trunc.up and .trunc.low which provide functional slots r,d,p,q for one-sided truncation. In case of two sided truncation, we simply use one-sided truncation successively — first left and then right in case we are right of the median, and the other way round else; the result is again of class "AbscontDistribution";

Truncate

signature(object = "DiscreteDistribution"): returns the distribution of min(upper,max(X,lower)) conditioned to lower<=X<=upper, if X is distributed according to object; the result is again of class "DiscreteDistribution"

Truncate

signature(object = "LatticeDistribution"): if length of the corresp. lattice is infinite and slot .logExact of argument object is TRUE, we proceed similarly as in case of AbscontDistribution, also using internal functions .trunc.up and .trunc.low; else we use the corresponding "DiscreteDistribution" method; the result is again of class "LatticeDistribution"

Truncate

signature(object = "UnivarLebDecDistribution"): returns the distribution of min(upper,max(X,lower)) conditioned to lower<=X<=upper, if X is distributed according to object; the result is again of class "UnivarLebDecDistribution"

Examples

plot(Truncate(Norm(),lower=-1,upper=2))
TN <- Truncate(Norm(),lower=15,upper=15.7) ### remarkably right!
plot(TN)
r(TN)(30)
TNG <- Truncate(Geom(prob=0.05),lower=325,upper=329) ### remarkably right!
plot(TNG)
