colbeta.mle: Column-wise MLE of some univariate distributions

Column-wise MLE of some univariate distributionsR Documentation

Column-wise MLE of some univariate distributions

Description

Column-wise MLE of some univariate distributions.

Usage

colbeta.est(x, tol = 1e-07, maxiters = 100, parallel = FALSE)
collogitnorm.est(x)
colunitweibull.est(x, tol = 1e-07, maxiters = 100, parallel = FALSE)
colsimplex.est(x, tol = 1e-07)

Arguments

x

A numerical matrix with data. Each column refers to a different vector of observations of the same distribution. The values must by percentages, exluding 0 and 1,

tol

The tolerance value to terminate the Newton-Fisher algorithm.

maxiters

The maximum number of iterations to implement.

parallel

Do you want to calculations to take place in parallel? The default value is FALSE

Details

For each column, the same distribution is fitted and its parameters and log-likelihood are computed.

Value

A matrix with two or three columns. The first one or the first two contain the parameter(s) of the distribution and the second or third column the relevant log-likelihood.
