LoglikNormalCens(x, data, lowerbound, vdelta)
LoglikWeibullCens(x, data, lowerbound, vdelta)
LoglikLogisticCens(x, data, lowerbound, vdelta)
LoglikGammaCens(x, data, lowerbound, vdelta)

Arguments

x

Two-dimensional vector giving the canonical parameters of the distribution.

data

Observed or censored event times.

lowerbound

A vector that collect lower bounds for the interval-censored observations. If no lower bound is available then put NA.

vdelta

A vector which indicates censoring (0: censored, 1: not censored).

Note

Function not intended to be invoked by the user.
