MultPoisson: Multiplicative Poisson Distribution

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

These functions provide information about the multiplicative Poisson distribution with parameters m and s: density, cumulative distribution, quantiles, and random generation.

The multiplicative Poisson distribution with mu = m has density

p(y) = c(m,s) exp(-m) m^y s^(y^2) / y!

with s <= 1 for y = 0, …, where c(.) is a normalizing constant.

Note that it only allows for underdispersion, not being defined for s > 1.

dmultpois(y, m, s, log=FALSE)

qmultpois(p, m, s)
rmultpois(n, m, s)

Arguments

y

vector of counts

q

vector of quantiles

p

vector of probabilities

n

number of values to generate

m

scalar or vector of means

s

scalar or vector of overdispersion parameters, all of which must lie in (0,1).

log

if TRUE, log probabilities are supplied.
