PO: Poisson distribution for fitting a GAMLSS model

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

View source: R/po.r

Description

This function PO defines the Poisson distribution, an one parameter distribution, for a gamlss.family object to be used in GAMLSS fitting using the function gamlss(). The functions dPO, pPO, qPO and rPO define the density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the Poisson, PO(), distribution.

PO(mu.link = "log")
dPO(x, mu = 1, log = FALSE)
pPO(q, mu = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qPO(p, mu = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
rPO(n, mu = 1)

Arguments

mu.link

Defines the mu.link, with "log" link as the default for the mu parameter

x

vector of (non-negative integer) quantiles

mu

vector of positive means

p

vector of probabilities

q

vector of quantiles

n

number of random values to return

log, log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p)

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x], otherwise, P[X > x]

Details

Definition file for Poisson distribution.

f(y|μ)=e^(-μ)*μ^y/Γ(y+1)

for y=0,1,2,... and μ>0.

Value

returns a gamlss.family object which can be used to fit a Poisson distribution in the gamlss() function.

Note

mu is the mean of the Poisson distribution
