Description

This is a helper function that compute the sum of squares between two theoretical and observed quantiles of an exponential distribution (typically the lower and upper bounds of a confidence interval). This function is for internal use to find the best-fit exponential distribution for a given confidence interval.

Usage

1
ssExpPars(ratePar, qLow, qUpp, alpha = 0.05)

Arguments

ratePar

The rate parameter of the theoretical exponential distribution.

qLow

The observed lower quantile.

qUpp

The observed upper quantile.

alpha

The confidence level; i.e. the desired coverage is 1-alpha. Defaults to 0.05.

Value

A single number, the sum of squares.
