   snqProfitCalc( priceNames, fixNames, data, weights,
      scalingFactors = rep( 1, length( weights ) ), coef,
      quantNames = NULL, form = 0 )

Arguments

priceNames

a vector of strings containing the names of netput prices.

fixNames

an optional vector of strings containing the names of the quantities of (quasi-)fix inputs.

data

a data frame containing the data.

weights

vector of weights of the prices for normalization.

quantNames

optional vector of strings containing the names of netput quantities.

scalingFactors

factors to scale prices (and quantities).

coef

a list containing the coefficients alpha, beta, delta and gamma.

form

the functional form to be estimated (see snqProfitEst).

Value

a data frame: the first n columns are the netput quantities, the last column is the profit.
