DEL: The Delaporte distribution for fitting a GAMLSS model

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

Description

The DEL() function defines the Delaporte distribution, a three parameter discrete distribution, for a gamlss.family object to be used in GAMLSS fitting using the function gamlss(). The functions dDEL, pDEL, qDEL and rDEL define the density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the Delaporte DEL(), distribution.

DEL(mu.link = "log", sigma.link = "log", nu.link = "logit")
dDEL(x, mu=1, sigma=1, nu=0.5, log=FALSE)
pDEL(q, mu=1, sigma=1, nu=0.5, lower.tail = TRUE, 
        log.p = FALSE)
qDEL(p, mu=1, sigma=1, nu=0.5,  lower.tail = TRUE, 
     log.p = FALSE,  max.value = 10000)        
rDEL(n, mu=1, sigma=1, nu=0.5, max.value = 10000)

Arguments

mu.link

Defines the mu.link, with "log" link as the default for the mu parameter

sigma.link

Defines the sigma.link, with "log" link as the default for the sigma parameter

nu.link

Defines the nu.link, with "logit" link as the default for the nu parameter

x

vector of (non-negative integer) quantiles

mu

vector of positive mu

sigma

vector of positive dispersion parameter

nu

vector of nu

p

vector of probabilities

q

vector of quantiles

n

number of random values to return

log, log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p)

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x], otherwise, P[X > x]

max.value

a constant, set to the default value of 10000 for how far the algorithm should look for q

Details

The probability function of the Delaporte distribution is given by

f(y|mu,sigma,nu)=(exp(-mu*nu)/Gamma(1/sigma))*[1+mu*sigma*(1-nu)]^(-1/sigma) S

where

S=Sum(Per(y,j))*((mu^y)*(nu^{y-j})/y!) *[1+(1/(sigma*(1-nu)))]^j Gamma((1/sigma)*j)

for y=0,1,2,... where mu>0 , σ>0 and 0<nu<1. This distribution is a parametrization of the distribution given by Wimmer and Altmann (1999) p 515-516 where a=mu*nu, 1/sigma and p=[1+mu*nu*(1-nu)]^(-1)

Value

Returns a gamlss.family object which can be used to fit a Delaporte distribution in the gamlss() function.

Note

The mean of Y is given by E(Y)=mu and the variance by V(Y)=mu+mu^2*sigma*(1-nu)^2.
