computes cumulative logistic coefficients using probabilities

Description

computes cumulative logistic coefficients using probabilities.

Usage

1

Arguments

p

a vector of probabilities (positive entries summing to 1).

Details

If p has one value (equal to 1) alpha.compute returns NA, if it has S (S>=2) values, alpha.compute returns S-1 coefficients alpha such that if Y is a random variable taking values in {1,...,S} with probabilities p, coefficients alpha[i] are given by:

\code{p[1]+...+p[i]=P(Y<=i)=exp(alpha[1]+...+alpha[i])/(1+exp(alpha[1]+...+alpha[i]))},

for all i<=S-1.

Value

The function returns alpha: a vector of S-1 cumulative logistic coefficients.

See Also

alpha.compute is the inverse function of p.compute
