probPOS(n, a, b, th)

Arguments

n

- Number of trials

a

- Prior Parameters

b

- Prior Parameters

th

- Theta value seeking Pr(Theta/X < th)

Details

Computes probability of the event p < p0 (p0 is specified in [0, 1]) based on posterior distribution of Beta-Binomial model with given parameters for prior Beta distribution for all x = 0, 1, 2......n where n is the number of trials

Value

A dataframe with

x

Number of successes

PosProb
