Description

This function calculates the innermost intervals (Turnbull's algorithm) for interval-censored data. Right-censored data is not allowed at this point.

Usage

1
inmost(data, eps)

Arguments

data

A matrix with two columns, consisting of left and right endpoints of the interval data

eps

A scalar additive value which jitters the data slightly to break ties.

Value

A 2 column matrix of the left and right endpoints of the innermost intervals.
