Description

Common conditional log-likelihood parameterized in terms of delta (phi / (phi+1))

Usage

1
commonCondLogLikDerDelta(y, delta, der = 0) 

Arguments

y

list with elements comprising the matrices of count data (or pseudocounts) for the different groups

delta

delta (phi / (phi+1)) parameter of negative binomial

der

derivative, either 0 (the function), 1 (first derivative) or 2 (second derivative)

Details

The common conditional log-likelihood is constructed by summing over all of the individual genewise conditional log-likelihoods. The common conditional log-likelihood is taken as a function of the dispersion parameter (phi), and here parameterized in terms of delta (phi / (phi+1)). The value of delta that maximizes the common conditional log-likelihood is converted back to the phi scale, and this value is the estimate of the common dispersion parameter used by all genes.

Value

numeric scalar of function/derivative evaluated at given delta
