qtrunc: Quantitle Function for Truncated Random Variable

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

This function evaluates the inverse of the cumulative distribution funciton for a truncated random variable or so the so called quantile function for a given vector of probabilities and the specified distribution.

Usage

1
qtrunc(p, spec, a = -Inf, b = Inf, ...)

Arguments

p

A vector of probabilities

spec

a character value that specifies the underlying probability distribution

a

a numeric value for the lower bound of the random variable

b

a numeric value for the upper bound of the random variable

...

other arguments are are passed to the corresponding quantile and distribution function

Value

A vector of quantile values in the range of the truncated random variable.
