Random generation of composite model.

Description

Computes rg of the composite model.

Usage

1
rcomposite(n, spec1, arg1, spec2, arg2, initial = 1)

Arguments

n

number of random generated values.

spec1

a character string specifying the head parent distribution (for example, "lnorm" if the parent distribution corresponds to the lognormal).

arg1

list of arguments/parameters of the head parent distribution.

spec2

a character string specifying the tail parent distribution (for example, "exp" if the parent distribution corresponds to the exponential).

arg2

list of arguments/parameters of the tail parent distribution.

initial

initial values of the threshold, θ.

Value

An object of the length n, giving the random generated values for the composite model.
