api-tabNew: Create multidimensional arrays

api-tabNewR Documentation

Create multidimensional arrays

Description

Alternative ways of creating arrays

Usage

tabNew(names, levels, values, normalize = "none", smooth = 0)

Arguments

names

Names of variables defining table; a character vector or a right hand sided formula.

levels
  1. a list with specification of the levels of the factors in names or 2) a vector with number of levels of the factors in names. See 'examples' below.

values

values to go into the parray

normalize

Either "none", "first" or "all". Should result be normalized, see 'Details' below.

smooth

Should values be smoothed, see 'Details' below.

Details

If normalize="first" then for each configuration of all other variables than the first, the probabilities are normalized to sum to one. Thus f(a,b,c) becomes a conditional probability table of the form p(a|b,c). If normalize="all" then the sum over all entries of f(a,b,c) is one.

If \code{smooth} is positive then
\code{smooth} is added to \code{values} before normalization
takes place.

Value

An array.

Examples


universe <- list(gender=c('male','female'),
                 answer=c('yes','no'),
                 rain=c('yes','no'))
t1 <- tabNew(c("gender","answer"), levels=universe, values=1:4)
t1
t2 <- tabNew(~gender:answer, levels=universe, values=1:4)
t2
t3 <- tabNew(~gender:answer, c(2,2), values=1:4)
t3
