Expected frequency of species
Given a community size, biodiversity parameter theta, and an immigration rate m, returns the expected frequency of species with n individuals, for 0<n<=J.
Size of community
A two-element vector with first element interpreted as
theta, the Fundamental biodiversity parameter and the second, m,
interpreted as the probability of immigration. This argument will
accept the output of
Boolean, with default
Returns an object of class “phi”.
The method used is slightly inefficient: the terms to the left of the integral sign [in Volkov's equation 7] are integrated and this is, strictly, unnecessary as it is not a function of y. However, taking advantage of this fact results in messy code.
