Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

View source: R/mllnorm.R

Description

The maximum likelihood estimate of meanlog is the empirical mean of the log-transformed data and the maximum likelihood estimate of sdlog is the square root of the biased sample variance based on the log-transformed data.

Usage

1
mllnorm(x, na.rm = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

a (non-empty) numeric vector of data values.

na.rm

logical. Should missing values be removed?

...

currently affects nothing.

Details

For the density function of the log normal distribution see Lognormal.
