pdfnor: Probability Density Function of the Normal Distribution

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

Description

This function computes the probability density function of the Normal distribution given parameters computed by parnor. The probability density function is

f(x) = \frac{1}{σ √{2π}} \exp\!≤ft(\frac{-(x-μ)^2}{2σ^2}\right) \mbox{,}

where f(x) is the probability density for quantile x, μ is the arithmetic mean, and σ is the standard deviation. The R function pnorm is used.

Usage

1
pdfnor(x, para)

Arguments

x

A real value.

para

The parameters from parnor or vec2par.

Value

Probability density (f) for x.
