Percentile

Beta Shape Parameter Given Mean and Variance of a Standard Beta PDD.

Calculates the Beta value required to produce a Standard (two-parameter) Beta probability density distribution with defined mean and variance or standard deviation.

Usage
BMS(mean, var, sd = NULL)
Arguments
mean

The mean of the target Standard Beta probability density distribution.

var

The variance of the target Standard Beta probability density distribution.

sd

The standard deviation of the target Standard Beta probability density distribution.

Value

A numeric value representing the required value for the Beta shape-parameter in order to produce a Standard Beta probability density distribution with the target mean and variance.
