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

Description

The parameter of a negative binomial distribution, used by Nbinom-class

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("NbinomParameter", prob, size). Usually an object of this class is not needed on its own, it is generated automatically when an object of the class Nbinom is prepared.

Slots

prob

Object of class "numeric": the probability of a negative binomial distribution

size

Object of class "numeric": the size of a negative binomial distribution

name

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

Extends

Class "Parameter", directly.

Methods

initialize

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

prob

signature(object = "NbinomParameter"): returns the slot prob of the parameter of the distribution

prob<-

signature(object = "NbinomParameter"): modifies the slot prob of the parameter of the distribution

size

signature(object = "NbinomParameter"): returns the slot size of the parameter of the distribution

size<-

signature(object = "NbinomParameter"): modifies the slot size of the parameter of the distribution
