Share:

Description

This function calculates value of the pgf's inverse of the Waring distribution.

Usage

1
pgfIwaring(s, params)

Arguments

s

Value of the parameter of the pgf. It should be from interval [-1,1]. In the opposite pgf diverges.

params

List of the parameters of the Waring distribution, such that params<-c(c,a), where $c>a$ and both parameters are positive.

    for (i in 1:length(s)) {
        func<-function(x) pgfwaring(x,params)-s[i]
        xval[i]<-uniroot(func,lower=0,upper=1)$root
    }
