# rbivgeo: Generates Random Deviates from the Basu-Dhar Bivariate... In BivGeo: Basu-Dhar Bivariate Geometric Distribution

## Description

This function generates random values from the Basu-Dhar bivariate geometric distribution assuming arbitrary parameter values.

## Usage

 1 2 rbivgeo1(n, theta) rbivgeo2(n, theta) 

## Arguments

 n number of observations. If length(n) > 1, the length is taken to be the number required. theta vector (of length 3) containing values of the parameters θ_1, θ_2 and θ_{3} of the Basu-Dhar bivariate Geometric distribution. The parameters are restricted to 0 < θ_i < 1, i = 1,2 and 0 < θ_{3} ≤ 1.

## Details

The conditional distribution of X given Y is given by:

If X < Y, then

P(X = x | Y = y) = θ_1^{x - 1}(1 - θ_1)

If X = Y, then

P(X = x | Y = y) = \frac{θ_1^{x - 1}(1 - θ_1 θ_{3} - θ_2 θ_{3} + θ_1 θ_2 θ_{3})}{1 - θ_2 θ_{3}}

If X > Y, then

P(X = x | Y = y) = \frac{θ_1^{x - 1} θ_{3}^{x - y}(1 - θ_{1} θ_{3}) (1 - θ_2)}{1 - θ_2 θ_{3}}

## Value

rbivgeo1 and rbivgeo2 generate random deviates from the Bash-Dhar bivariate geometric distribution. The length of the result is determined by n, and is the maximum of the lengths of the numerical arguments for the other functions.

Invalid arguments will return an error message.

rbivgeo1 generates random deviates using the inverse transformation method. Returns a matrix that the first column corresponds to X generated random values and the second column corresponds to Y generated random values.

rbivgeo2 generates random deviates using the shock model. Returns a matrix that the first column corresponds to X generated random values and the second column corresponds to Y generated random values. See Marshall and Olkin (1967) for more details.
