T.Owen: Owen's function

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Background Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Evaluates function T(h,a) studied by D.B.Owen

Usage

1
T.Owen(h, a, jmax=50, cut.point=8)

Arguments

h

a numeric vector. Missing values (NAs) and Inf are allowed.

a

a numeric value. Inf is allowed.

jmax

an integer scalar value which regulates the accuracy of the result. See Section ‘Details’ below for explanation.

cut.point

a scalar value which regulates the behaviour of the algorithm, as explained in Section ‘Details’ below (default value: 8).

Details

If a>1 and 0<h<=cut.point, a series expansion is used, truncated after jmax terms. If a>1 and h>cut.point, an asymptotic approximation is used. In the other cases, various reflection properties of the function are exploited. See the reference below for more information.

Value

a numeric vector.

Background

The function T(h,a) studied by Owen (1956) is useful for the computation of the bivariate normal distribution function and related quantities, including the distribution function of a skew-normal variate; see psn. See the reference below for more information on function T(h,a).
