GPO: The generalised Poisson distribution

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

Description

The GPO() function defines the generalised Poisson distribution, a two parameter discrete distribution, for a gamlss.family object to be used in GAMLSS fitting using the function gamlss(). The functions dGPO, pGPO, qGPO and rGPO define the density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the Delaporte GPO(), distribution.

GPO(mu.link = "log", sigma.link = "log")

dGPO(x, mu = 1, sigma = 1, log = FALSE)

pGPO(q, mu = 1, sigma = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)

qGPO(p, mu = 1, sigma = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE, max.value = 10000)

rGPO(n, mu = 1, sigma = 1,  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

x

vector of (non-negative integer) quantiles

mu

vector of positive mu

sigma

vector of positive dispersion parameter sigma

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 Generalised Poisson distribution is given by

f(y|mu,sigma)= (μ/ (1+σ+μ))^y (1+σ y)^(y-1)/y! exp(-μ (1+σ y)/(1+σ+μ))

for y=0,1,2,... where mu>0 and σ>0.

Value

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