dtriangle(x, theta, lower = 0, upper = 1, log = FALSE)
ptriangle(q, theta, lower = 0, upper = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qtriangle(p, theta, lower = 0, upper = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
rtriangle(n, theta, lower = 0, upper = 1)

Arguments

x, q

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

n

number of observations. Same as runif.

theta

the theta parameter which lies between lower and upper.

lower, upper

lower and upper limits of the distribution. Must be finite.

log

Logical. If log = TRUE then the logarithm of the density is returned.

lower.tail, log.p

Same meaning as in pnorm or qnorm.

Details

See triangle, the VGAM family function for estimating the parameter theta by maximum likelihood estimation.

Value

dtriangle gives the density, ptriangle gives the distribution function, qtriangle gives the quantile function, and rtriangle generates random deviates.
