dzapois(x, lambda, pobs0 = 0, log = FALSE)
pzapois(q, lambda, pobs0 = 0)
qzapois(p, lambda, pobs0 = 0)
rzapois(n, lambda, pobs0 = 0)

Arguments

x, q

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

n

number of observations. If length(n) > 1 then the length is taken to be the number required.

lambda

Vector of positive means.

pobs0

Probability of zero, called pobs0. The default value of pobs0 = 0 corresponds to the response having a positive Poisson distribution.

log

Logical. Return the logarithm of the answer?

Details

The probability function of Y is 0 with probability pobs0, else a positive Poisson(lambda).

Value

dzapois gives the density, pzapois gives the distribution function, qzapois gives the quantile function, and rzapois generates random deviates.

Note

The argument pobs0 is recycled to the required length, and must have values which lie in the interval [0,1].
