Class "Contsimulation"

Share:

Description

In an object of type Contsimulation data can be simulated in any distribution and size. One part (usually the largest) of the random numbers stems from an ideal distribution, the rest from a contaminating distribution.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form Contsimulation(filename, samplesize, runs, seed, distribution.id, distribution.c, rate) (observation dimension is deduced from slot distribution.id). A Contsimulation-object includes a filename, the number of runs, the size of the sample, the seed, the distribution of the ideal and the contaminated data and the contamination rate. The slot Data stays empty until the method simulate has been used. The same goes for slots Data.id and Data.c.

Slots

ind:

Object of class "MatrixorNULLorVector": Indicator of the same length as the data; saves whether each element of the data vector is contaminated or not

Data.id:

Object of class "ArrayorNULLorVector": – the ideal data

Data.c:

Object of class "ArrayorNULLorVector": – the contaminated data

rate:

Object of class "numeric": the contamination rate, so the probability for each random number to be contaminated

distribution.c:

Object of class "UnivariateDistribution": the distribution of the ideal data

distribution.id:

Object of class "UnivariateDistribution": the distribution of the contaminated data

seed:

Object of class "list": the seed the simulation has been generated with

name:

Object of class "character": a name for the Contsimulation

filename:

Object of class "character": the filename the Contsimulation shall be saved

Data:

Object of class "ArrayorNULLorVector": the simulated data

samplesize:

Object of class "numeric": the size of the sample, so the dimension of the data

obsDim:

Object of class "numeric": the observation dimension of the data

runs:

Object of class "numeric": the number of runs of the data

Methods

Data.c

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the contaminated data

Data.id

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the ideal data

Data<-

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): ERROR: A modification of simulated data is not allowed.

filename

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the the filename

filename<-

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): changes the the filename

name

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the the name

name<-

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): changes the the name

distribution.c

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the distribution of the contaminated data

distribution.c<-

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): changes the distribution of the contaminated data

distribution.id

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the distribution of the ideal data

distribution.id<-

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): changes the distribution of the ideal data

seed

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the seed

seed<-

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): changes the seed

ind

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the indicator which saves which data is contaminated

initialize

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

rate

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the contamination rate

rate<-

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): changes the contamination rate

obsDim

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the dimension of the observations

getVersion

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the version of this package, under which this object was generated

runs

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the number of runs

runs<-

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): changes the number of runs

samplesize

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns the size of the sample

samplesize<-

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): changes the size of the sample

savedata

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): saves the object without the data in the directory of R. (After loading the data can be reproduced by using simulate.)

simulate

signature(x = "Contsimulation"): generates the random numbers for the simulation

plot

signature(x = "Contsimulation"): produces a plot of the real data matrix; ; for details confer plot-methods

print

signature(x = "Contsimulation"): returns filename, seed, the observation dimension, the number of runs, the size of the sample, the contamination rate and the distributions, and, if from a version > 1.8, also the package version under which the object was generated

summary

signature(object = "Contsimulation"): returns filename, seed, number of runs, the size of the sample, the rate and a statistical summary for each run of the real data

Note

Changing distributions, seed, runs, samplesize or rate deletes possibly simulated data, as it would not fit to the new parameters.
