mixbeta(..., param = c("ab", "ms", "mn"))

ms2beta(m, s, drop = TRUE)

mn2beta(m, n, drop = TRUE)

## S3 method for class 'betaMix'
summary(object, probs = c(0.025, 0.5, 0.975), ...)

## S3 method for class 'betaBinomialMix'
summary(object, probs = c(0.025, 0.5, 0.975), ...)

Arguments

...

List of mixture components.

param

Determines how the parameters in the list are interpreted. See details.

m

Vector of means of beta mixture components.

s

Vector of standard deviations of beta mixture components.

drop

Delete the dimensions of an array which have only one level.

n

Vector of number of observations.

object

Beta mixture object.

probs

Quantiles reported by the summary function.

Details

Each entry in the ... argument list is expected to be a triplet of numbers which defines the weight w_k, first and second parameter of the mixture component k. A triplet can optionally be named which will be used appropriately.

The first and second parameter can be given in different parametrizations which is set by the param option:

ab

Natural parametrization of Beta density (a=shape1 and b=shape2). Default.

ms

Mean and standard deviation, m=a/(a+b) and s=√{\frac{m(1-m)}{1+n}}, where n=a+b is the number of observations. Note that s must be less than √{m(1-m)}.

mn

Mean and number of observations, n=a+b.

Value

mixbeta returns a beta mixture with the specified mixture components. ms2beta and mn2beta return the equivalent natural a and b parametrization given parameters m, s, or n.
