Multivariate Distributions

Description

The class of multivariate distributions. One has at least to specify the image space of the distribution and a function generating (pseudo-)random numbers. The slot q is usually filled with NULL for dimensions > 1.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("MultivariateDistribution", ...).

Slots

img

Object of class "rSpace". Image space of the distribution. Usually an object of class "EuclideanSpace".

param

Object of class "OptionalParameter". Optional parameter of the multivariate distribution.

r

Object of class "function": generates (pseudo-)random numbers

d

Object of class "OptionalFunction": optional density function

p

Object of class "OptionalFunction": optional cumulative distribution function

q

Object of class "OptionalFunction": optional quantile function

.withArith

logical: used internally to issue warnings as to interpretation of arithmetics

.withSim

logical: used internally to issue warnings as to accuracy

.logExact

logical: used internally to flag the case where there are explicit formulae for the log version of density, cdf, and quantile function

.lowerExact

logical: used internally to flag the case where there are explicit formulae for the lower tail version of cdf and quantile function

Symmetry

object of class "DistributionSymmetry"; used internally to avoid unnecessary calculations.

Extends

Class "Distribution", directly.
