## Default S3 method:
mixdist(dist, params, weights, ...)

Arguments

...

distribution objects.

weights

vector of weights for the components.

dist

vector of distribution names.

params

list of parameters for each component.

Details

A CDF of a mixture distribution function is

F(A)=∑ w_{i}F_{i}(A)

, where w_{i} is the weight of the i-th component and F_{i}() is the CDF of the i-th component.

The objects can be specified in two ways, either the user may enter distribution objects or a vector of names and list of parameters. See the examples below.
