CauchyParameter-class: Class "CauchyParameter"

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

Description

The parameter of a Cauchy distribution, used by Cauchy-class

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("CauchyParameter", location, scale). Usually an object of this class is not needed on its own, it is generated automatically when an object of the class Cauchy is instantiated.

Slots

location:

Object of class "numeric": the location of a Cauchy distribution

scale

Object of class "numeric": the scale of a Cauchy distribution

name

Object of class "character": a name / comment for the parameters

Extends

Class "Parameter", directly.

Methods

initialize

signature(.Object = "CauchyParameter"): initialize method

scale

signature(object = "CauchyParameter"): returns the slot scale of the parameter of the distribution

scale<-

signature(object = "CauchyParameter"): modifies the slot scale of the parameter of the distribution

location

signature(object = "CauchyParameter"): returns the slot location of the parameter of the distribution

location<-

signature(object = "CauchyParameter"): modifies the slot location of the parameter of the distribution
