Description

Computes the normalizing constant Z in the COM-Poisson model for the given parameters of lambda and nu.

Usage

1
computez.lambdaest(lambda, nu, max)

Arguments

lambda

Lambda value in the COM-Poisson distribution

nu

Nu value in the COM-Poisson distribution

max

Maximum number of iterations to run for truncating infinite sums

Details

Computez.lambdaest estimates the COM-Poisson normalizing constant.

Value

After the specified number of iterations, the function returns the normalizing constant Z as a real number.
