DiscreteUniform | R Documentation |

Mathematical and statistical functions for the Discrete Uniform distribution, which is commonly used as a discrete variant of the more popular Uniform distribution, used to model events with an equal probability of occurring (e.g. role of a die).

The Discrete Uniform distribution parameterised with lower, *a*, and upper, *b*, limits is defined by the pmf,

*f(x) = 1/(b - a + 1)*

for *a, b ε Z; b ≥ a*.

Returns an R6 object inheriting from class SDistribution.

The distribution is supported on *{a, a + 1,..., b}*.

-> `DiscreteUniform`

`name`

Full name of distribution.

`short_name`

Short name of distribution for printing.

`description`

Brief description of the distribution.

`packages`

Packages required to be installed in order to construct the distribution.

`properties`

Returns distribution properties, including skewness type and symmetry.

`new()`

Creates a new instance of this R6 class.

DiscreteUniform$new(lower = NULL, upper = NULL, decorators = NULL)

`lower`

`(integer(1))`

Lower limit of the Distribution, defined on the Naturals.`upper`

`(integer(1))`

Upper limit of the Distribution, defined on the Naturals.`decorators`

`(character())`

Decorators to add to the distribution during construction.

`mean()`

The arithmetic mean of a (discrete) probability distribution X is the expectation

*E_X(X) = ∑ p_X(x)*x*

with an integration analogue for continuous distributions.

DiscreteUniform$mean(...)

`...`

Unused.

`mode()`

The mode of a probability distribution is the point at which the pdf is a local maximum, a distribution can be unimodal (one maximum) or multimodal (several maxima).

DiscreteUniform$mode(which = "all")

`which`

`(character(1) | numeric(1)`

Ignored if distribution is unimodal. Otherwise`"all"`

returns all modes, otherwise specifies which mode to return.

`variance()`

The variance of a distribution is defined by the formula

*var_X = E[X^2] - E[X]^2*

where *E_X* is the expectation of distribution X. If the distribution is multivariate the
covariance matrix is returned.

DiscreteUniform$variance(...)

`...`

Unused.

`skewness()`

The skewness of a distribution is defined by the third standardised moment,

*sk_X = E_X[((x - μ)/σ)^3]*

where *E_X* is the expectation of distribution X, *μ* is the mean of the
distribution and *σ* is the standard deviation of the distribution.

DiscreteUniform$skewness(...)

`...`

Unused.

`kurtosis()`

The kurtosis of a distribution is defined by the fourth standardised moment,

*k_X = E_X[((x - μ)/σ)^4]*

where *E_X* is the expectation of distribution X, *μ* is the mean of the
distribution and *σ* is the standard deviation of the distribution.
Excess Kurtosis is Kurtosis - 3.

DiscreteUniform$kurtosis(excess = TRUE, ...)

`excess`

`(logical(1))`

If`TRUE`

(default) excess kurtosis returned.`...`

Unused.

`entropy()`

The entropy of a (discrete) distribution is defined by

*- ∑ (f_X)log(f_X)*

where *f_X* is the pdf of distribution X, with an integration analogue for
continuous distributions.

DiscreteUniform$entropy(base = 2, ...)

`base`

`(integer(1))`

Base of the entropy logarithm, default = 2 (Shannon entropy)`...`

Unused.

`mgf()`

The moment generating function is defined by

*mgf_X(t) = E_X[exp(xt)]*

where X is the distribution and *E_X* is the expectation of the distribution X.

DiscreteUniform$mgf(t, ...)

`t`

`(integer(1))`

t integer to evaluate function at.`...`

Unused.

`cf()`

The characteristic function is defined by

*cf_X(t) = E_X[exp(xti)]*

where X is the distribution and *E_X* is the expectation of the distribution X.

DiscreteUniform$cf(t, ...)

`t`

`(integer(1))`

t integer to evaluate function at.`...`

Unused.

`pgf()`

The probability generating function is defined by

*pgf_X(z) = E_X[exp(z^x)]*

where X is the distribution and *E_X* is the expectation of the distribution X.

DiscreteUniform$pgf(z, ...)

`z`

`(integer(1))`

z integer to evaluate probability generating function at.`...`

Unused.

`clone()`

The objects of this class are cloneable with this method.

DiscreteUniform$clone(deep = FALSE)

`deep`

Whether to make a deep clone.
