Description

Calculates the log stochastic growth rate by Tuljapukar's approximation and by simulation.

Usage

1
stoch.growth.rate(matrices, prob = NULL, maxt = 50000, verbose=TRUE)

Arguments

matrices

prob

a vector of probability weights used by sample for selecting the projection matrices, defaults to equal probabilities

maxt

number of time intervals, default 50000

verbose

Print comment at start of time 1, 10000, 20000, etc.

Value

A list with 3 items

approx

log stochastic growth rate by Tuljapukar's approximation

sim
