Description

The function will estimate the covariance, alpha and beta parameter values using the maximum log likelihood method for the Beta-Correlated Binomial distribution when the binomial random variables and corresponding frequencies are given

Usage

1
EstMLEBetaCorrBin(x,freq,cov,a,b)

Arguments

x

vector of binomial random variables

freq

vector of frequencies

cov

single value for covariance

a

single value for alpha parameter

b

single value for beta parameter

Details

x = 0,1,2,...

freq ≥ 0

-∞ < cov < +∞

0 < a,b

NOTE : If input parameters are not in given domain conditions necessary error messages will be provided to go further

Value

EstMLEBetaCorrBin here is used as a input parameter for the mle2 function of bbmle package therefore output is of class of mle2.
