Class /probab/ to specify the essential part of a probability distribution
Objects of class /probab/ gives the possibility to store in a standardized way, important pieces of information about a probability distribution: the family, the support, and possibly the truncation interval. This a basic object not to be handle by end-users. Notice that no slot is devoted to the name of the described node. It is used in /distri/ and /nod/ objects.
Objects from the Class
Objects can be created by calls of the form
character(1)giving the the type of distribution like 'beta' or 'normal'. The possible families are stored into the constant
Object of class
"numeric"giving the truncation interval for the
normalfamily, the support and the truncation intervals for the
betafamilies, and the limits defining the categories for the
