Computes the number of discounted expected residual transactions by a customer, conditional on their behavior in the calibration period.

bgbb.DERT(params, x, t.x, n.cal, d)
``` |

`params` |
BG/BB parameters - a vector with alpha, beta, gamma, and delta, in that order. Alpha and beta are unobserved parameters for the beta-Bernoulli transaction process. Gamma and delta are unobserved parameters for the beta-geometric dropout process. |

`x` |
the number of repeat transactions made by the customer in the calibration period. Can also be vector of frequencies - see details. |

`t.x` |
recency - the transaction opportunity in which the customer made their last transaction. Can also be a vector of recencies - see details. |

`n.cal` |
number of transaction opportunities in the calibration period. Can also be a vector of calibration period transaction opportunities - see details. |

`d` |
discount rate. |

DERT(d | alpha, beta, gamma, delta, x, t.x, n). This is the present value of the expected future transaction stream for a customer with x transactions and a recency of t.x in n.cal transaction opportunities, discounted by a rate d.

`x`

, `t.x`

, and `n.cal`

may be vectors. The standard rules for vector
operations apply - if they are not of the same length, shorter vectors will
be recycled (start over at the first element) until they are as long as the
longest vector. It is advisable to keep vectors to the same length and to use
single values for parameters that are to be the same for all calculations. If
one of these parameters has a length greater than one, the output will be
also be a vector.

The present value of the expected future transaction stream for a particular customer.

params <- c(1.20, 0.75, 0.66, 2.78)
# Compute DERT for a customer who made 3 transactions

bgbb.DERT(params, x=3, t.x=4, n.cal=6, d=0.1)
# We can also compare DERT for several customers:
bgbb.DERT(params, x=1:6, t.x=6, n.cal=6, d=0.1)
