Description

This function returns the upper tail probability of a truncated normal distribution at quantile q.

Usage

1

Arguments

q

the quantile.

mean

the mean parameter

sd

the standard deviation

E

the truncation set, an "Intervals" object or a matrix where rows represents a union of disjoint intervals.

approx

should the approximation algorithm be used? Default is FALSE, where the approximation is not used in the first place. But when the result is wacky, the approximation will be used.

Details

Let X be a normal random variable with mean and sd. Truncating X to the set E is equivalent to conditioning on {X \in E}. So this function returns P(X ≥ q | X \in E).

Value

This function returns the value of the survival function evaluated at quantile q.
