Matrix of alpha terms

Description

Matrix of alpha terms used internally by the different Weibull count functions.

Usage

1
alphagen(cc, jrow, ncol)

Arguments

cc

numeric, shape parameter.

jrow

numeric, number of rows of the alpha matrix. See formulae (11) in McShane(2008).

ncol

numeric, number of columns of the alpha matrix. Note that the first column corresponds to n=0, n being the count value, see formulae (11) in McShane(2008).

Details

It is usually advisable to compute the alpha terms a minimum number of times as it may be time consuming in general. Note that the alpha terms only depend on the shape (c) parameter

Value

jrow x ncol (lower triangular) matrix of α_j^n terms defined in McShane(2008).

Examples

1
## alphagen(0.994, 6, 8)
