Bisect: An implementation of the bisection algorithm for root finding

Description Details Note Author(s) References See Also

View source: R/Bisect.R


Most of the optimization is Icens have a one dimensional root-finding component. Since the quantities involved are generally restricted to a subset of [0, 1] we use bisection to find the roots. This function is borrowed from package Icens.


We search from pvec in the direction ndir to obtain the new value of pvec that maximizes the likelihood.


It is used in ModifiedEMICMmac and not to be called by the user.
