Description

Generates random amounts with a multivariate lognormal distribution, or gives the density of that distribution at a given point.

Usage

rlnorm.rplus(n,meanlog,varlog)
dlnorm.rplus(x,meanlog,varlog)
          

Arguments

n

number of datasets to be simulated

meanlog

the mean-vector of the logs

varlog

the variance/covariance matrix of the logs

x

vectors in the sample space

Value

rlnorm.rplus gives a generated random dataset of class "rplus" following a lognormal distribution with logs having mean meanlog and variance varlog.
dlnorm.rplus gives the density of the distribution with respect to the Lesbesgue measure on R+ as a subset of R.

Note

The main difference between rlnorm.rplus and rnorm.aplus is that rlnorm.rplus needs a logged mean. The additional difference for the calculation of the density by dlnorm.rplus and dnorm.aplus is the reference measure (a log-Lebesgue one in the second case).
