mdt-class: Class '"mdt"'

Description Objects from the Class Slots Methods Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

A class to store multiple decrement tables

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("mdt", name, table, ...). They store absolute decrements

Slots

name:

The name of the table

table:

A data frame containing at least the number of decrements

Methods

getDecrements

signature(object = "mdt"): return the name of decrements

getOmega

signature(object = "mdt"): maximum attainable age

initialize

signature(.Object = "mdt"): method to initialize the class

print

signature(x = "mdt"): tabulate absolute decrement rates

show

signature(object = "mdt"): show rates of decrement

coerce

signature(from = "mdt", to = "markovchainList"): coercing to markovchainList objects

coerce

signature(from = "mdt", to = "data.frame"): coercing to markovchainList objects

summary

signature(object = "mdt"): it returns summary information about the object

Note

Currently only decrements storage of the class is defined.
