eff.disc-class: Class 'eff.disc'

Description Usage Arguments Details Value See Also

Description

This is the base S3 class for all discrete effectiveness distributions, which is itself a subclass of eff. Function effDisc_new is the constructor of the class.

Usage

1

Arguments

p

the values of the distribution function at the support points.

support

the support of the distribution.

df

the effective degrees of freedom of the distribution.

x

the sample of effectiveness scores used to fit the distribution. Defaults to NULL.

Details

A new distribution family is expected to build new objects through this constructor. Default implementations are readily available for methods deff, peff, qeff and reff.

Value

an object of class eff.disc, with the following components:

mean the expected value.
var the variance.
df the degrees of freedom (effective number of parameters) for model selection.
support the support of the distribution.
data the sample data used to fit the distribution, or NULL if none.
model a list with the family-specific data.
