Description

Mathematical and statistical functions for the Noncentral Beta distribution, which is commonly used as the prior in Bayesian modelling.

Details

The Noncentral Beta distribution parameterised with two shape parameters, α, β, and location, λ, is defined by the pdf,

f(x) = exp(-λ/2) ∑_{r=0}^∞ ((λ/2)^r/r!) (x^{α+r-1}(1-x)^{β-1})/B(α+r, β)

for α, β > 0, λ ≥ 0, where B is the Beta function.

Value

Returns an R6 object inheriting from class SDistribution.

Distribution support

The distribution is supported on [0, 1].

Default Parameterisation

BetaNC(shape1 = 1, shape2 = 1, location = 0)
