theor.distr.val

Theoretical distribution

The function returns the theorical probability distribution described by Blondeau Da Silva for data. If the dataset follows this particular distribution well enough, it enables not to use Benford's values of first (second, third or fourth) digit distribution but rather Blondeau Da Silva's ones. The distribution depends on an upper bound, which characterizes the data.

Usage
theor.distr.val(upbound, dig = 1)
Arguments
upbound

A positive integer, which characterizes the data. All (or most) of the data are lower than this "upper bound".

dig

The chosen position of the digit (from the left).

Value

The function returns a vector contening the probability distribution of the model determined by the upper bound value.
