Description

These functions provide the ability for generating probability function values and cumulative probability function values for the Triangular Binomial distribution.

Usage

Arguments

x

vector of binomial random variables

n

single value for no of binomial trials

mode

single value for mode

Details

Mixing unit bounded triangular distribution with binomial distribution will create Triangular Binomial distribution. The probability function and cumulative probability function can be constructed and are denoted below.

The cumulative probability function is the summation of probability function values

P_{TriBin}(x)= 2 {n \choose x}(c^{-1}B_c(x+2,n-x+1)+(1-c)^{-1}B(x+1,n-x+2)-(1-c)^{-1}B_c(x+1,n-x+2))

0 < mode=c < 1

x = 0,1,2,...n

n = 1,2,3...

The mean, variance and over dispersion are denoted as

E_{TriiBin}[x]= \frac{n(1+c)}{3}

Var_{TriBin}[x]= \frac{n(n+3)}{18}-\frac{n(n-3)c(1-c)}{18}

over dispersion= \frac{(1-c+c^2)}{2(2+c-c^2)}

Defined as B_c(a,b)=\int^c_0 t^{a-1} (1-t)^{b-1} \,dt is incomplete beta integrals and B(a,b) is the beta function.

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

Value

The output of pTriBin gives cumulative probability function values in vector form.
