Description

Given the parameters of a conditional Gaussian distribution, aout.cg identifies α-outliers in a given data set.

Usage

1
aout.cg(data, param, alpha = 0.1, hide.outliers = FALSE)

Arguments

data

a matrix. First column: Class of the value, coded with an integer between 1 and d, where d is the number of classes. Second column: The value as a realization of a univariate normal with parameters μ and σ. The data set to be examined.

param

a list with three elements: p: d-dimensional vector of probabilities of the classes. mu: d-dimensional vector of univariate mean values of each class. sigma: d-dimensional vector of univariate standard errors of each class

alpha

an atomic vector. Determines the maximum amount of probability mass the outlier region may contain. Defaults to 0.1.

hide.outliers

boolean. Returns the outlier-free data if set to TRUE. Defaults to FALSE.

Value

Data frame of the input data and an index named is.outlier that flags the outliers with TRUE. If hide.outliers is set to TRUE, a data frame of the outlier-free data.
