# Optimiziation routine for incidence imputation

### Description

When first records of incidence are unavailable, tries to impute censored cases to rebuild longer epidemic vector

### Usage

1 | ```
impute.incid(CD.optim.vect, CD.epid, CD.R0, CD.GT)
``` |

### Arguments

`CD.optim.vect` |
Vector of two elements (multiplicative factor, log(highest imputed data) to be optimized |

`CD.epid` |
Original epidemic vector, output of check.incid() |

`CD.R0` |
Assumed R0 value for the original epidemic vector |

`CD.GT` |
Generation time distribution to be used for computations |

### Details

This function is not intended for stand-alone use. It optimizes the values of
vect, based upon minimization of deviation between actual epidemics data and observed generation time.
The optimized function is `censored.deviation`

, which returns the deviation used for minimization.
Stand-alone use can be conducted, however this assumes data are all of the correct format.

### Value

A vector with both imputed incidence and source available data.
