Astro:Beta Distribution (quantile)

Description

An astro wrapper around the 'qbeta' function. Useful for calculating robust upper and lower error boundaries for a given data set.

Usage

1
aqbeta(k, n, s = c(-1,1), p = NA, corr = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

k

number of successes

n

total number of trials

s

sigma values required

p

probability values required (see details)

corr

apply a one-sided correction for extreme values ( k=0 / k=n )

...

arguments to be passed to 'qbeta'

Details

When 'p' is equal to <NA> (default), sigma confidence intervals are calculated according to the value of 's'. If a value of 'p' is given, probabilities of 'p' are calculated instead.
