startbernlnorm: Rough parameter estimate for the Bernoulli-Log-Normal...

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

View source: R/startbernlnorm.R

Description

Estimates rough starting values for the Bernoulli-Log-Normal distribution using the method of moments for the meanlog and the sdlog parameters. The probability of non-zero events is estimated as the fraction of values that are larger than zero.

Usage

Arguments

x

numeric vector.

Value

A list containing:

prob

probability of non-zero event.

meanlog

meanlog parameter of the Log-Normal distribution.

sdlog

sdlog parameter of the Log-Normal distribution.

Note

In this package startbernlnorm is intended to be used in conjunction with fitQmapDIST (and mledist) with parameter distr="bernlnorm".
