ao(theta, lambda, symm = TRUE, omega = 0.001)
invao(x, lambda, symm = TRUE, replace = TRUE)
bc(x, lambda)
invbc(x, lambda, replace = TRUE)
mcjI(x, lambda, symm = TRUE, dbounded = FALSE, omega = 0.001)
invmcjI(x, lambda, symm = TRUE, dbounded = FALSE)
mcjII(x, lambda, delta, dbounded = FALSE, omega = 0.001)
invmcjII(x, lambda, delta, dbounded = FALSE)

Arguments

x, theta

numeric vector of singly (x) or doubly (theta) bounded observations; theta must be between 0 and 1 (see map to map generic [a,b] intervals to [0,1]).

lambda, delta

transformation parameters.

symm

logical flag. If TRUE (default) a symmetric transformation is used.

dbounded

logical flag. If TRUE the argument x is assumed to be bounded between 0 and 1.

omega

small constant to avoid numerical problems when theta is exactly 0 or 1.

replace

logical flag. If TRUE (default), values that are outside the admissible range after the Box-Cox or the Aranda-Ordaz back-transformations are replaced by the range bounds.

Details

These functions transform (back-transform) x or theta conditional on the parameters lambda and theta, using the Box–Cox (bc), Aranda-Ordaz (ao), Proposal I (mcjI) and Proposal II (mcjII) transformations.

Value

Transformed or back-transformed values.
