EmpiricalMVDistribution: Generating function for mulitvariate discrete distribution

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/EmpiricalMVDistribution.R

Description

Generates an object of class "DiscreteMVDistribution".

Usage

1
EmpiricalMVDistribution(data, Symmetry = NoSymmetry())

Arguments

data

numeric matrix with data where the rows are interpreted as observations.

Symmetry

you may help R in calculations if you tell it whether the distribution is non-symmetric (default) or symmetric with respect to a center.

Details

The function is a simple utility function providing a wrapper to the generating function DiscreteDistribution.

Typical usages are

1
2

Identical rows are collapsed to unique support values. If prob is missing, all elements in supp are equally weighted.

Value

Object of class "DiscreteMVDistribution"
