The parameter of a normal distribution, used by Norm-class

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("NormParameter", sd, mean). Usually an object of this class is not needed on its own. It is the mother-class of the class UniNormParameter, which is generated automatically when such a distribution is instantiated.

Slots

sd

Object of class "numeric": the sd of a normal distribution

mean

Object of class "numeric": the mean of a normal distribution

name

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

Extends

Class "Parameter", directly.

Methods

initialize

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

mean

signature(object = "NormParameter"): returns the slot mean of the parameter of the distribution

mean<-

signature(object = "NormParameter"): modifies the slot mean of the parameter of the distribution

sd

signature(object = "NormParameter"): returns the slot sd of the parameter of the distribution

sd<-

signature(object = "NormParameter"): modifies the slot sd of the parameter of the distribution
