HCq: Set of functions to compute the Havrda-Charvat estimator

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

HCq computes the Havrda-Charvat estimator, and HCqVar computes the Havrda-Charvat asymptotic variance for a given exponent. By using HCqProfile, a Havrda-Charvat estimator is calculated for a predefined vector of exponents to obtain the full profile in the range, 0 to Inf.

Usage

1
2
3
HCq(w, q)
HCqVar(w, q)
HCqProfile(w, q = NULL)

Arguments

w

Vector of observed counts or frequencies.

q

Exponent. By default, a vector of values 1, 2, 3, 4 and Inf.

Details

In HCq only the first element in q is considered. HCqProfile is vectorized and considers all elements in q. When q is NULL: in this case, a default vector is taken to obtain the full profile in the range 0 to Inf.

Value

A value that corresponds to the Havrda-Charvat estimator when HCq or HCqVar is used. A data frame with the Havrda-Charvat estimator for each exponent when HCqProfile is used.
