# dist.Bernoulli: Bernoulli Distribution In LaplacesDemon: Complete Environment for Bayesian Inference

## Description

These functions provide the density, distribution function, quantile function, and random generation for the Bernoulli distribution.

## Usage

 ```1 2 3 4``` ```dbern(x, prob, log=FALSE) pbern(q, prob, lower.tail=TRUE, log.p=FALSE) qbern(p, prob, lower.tail=TRUE, log.p=FALSE) rbern(n, prob) ```

## Arguments

 `x, q` These are each a vector of quantiles. `p` This is a vector of probabilities. `n` This is the number of observations. If `length(n) > 1`, then the length is taken to be the number required. `prob` This is the probability of success on each trial. `log, log.p` Logical. if `TRUE`, probabilities p are given as log(p). `lower.tail` Logical. if `TRUE` (default), probabilities are Pr[X <= x], otherwise, Pr[X > x].

## Details

• Application: Continuous Univariate

• Density: p(theta) = p^theta (1-p)^(1-theta), theta = 0,1

• Inventor: Jacob Bernoulli

• Notation 1: theta ~ Bern(p)

• Notation 2: p(theta) = Bern(theta | p)

• Parameter 1: probability parameter 0 <= p <= 1

• Mean: E(theta) = p

• Variance: var(theta) = p / (1-p)

• Mode: mode(theta) =

The Bernoulli distribution is a binomial distribution with n=1, and one instance of a Bernoulli distribution is called a Bernoulli trial. One coin flip is a Bernoulli trial, for example. The categorical distribution is the generalization of the Bernoulli distribution for variables with more than two discrete values. The beta distribution is the conjugate prior distribution of the Bernoulli distribution. The geometric distribution is the number of Bernoulli trials needed to get one success.

## Value

`dbern` gives the density, `pbern` gives the distribution function, `qbern` gives the quantile function, and `rbern` generates random deviates.

`dbinom`

## Examples

 ```1 2 3``` ```library(LaplacesDemon) dbern(1, 0.7) rbern(10, 0.5) ```

### Example output

```[1] 0.7
[1] 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 1
```
