# AbscontDistribution-class

##### Class "AbscontDistribution"

The `AbscontDistribution`

-class is the mother-class of the classes `Beta`

, `Cauchy`

,
`Chisq`

, `Exp`

, `F`

, `Gamma`

, `Lnorm`

, `Logis`

, `Norm`

, `T`

, `Unif`

and
`Weibull`

. Further absolutely continuous distributions can be defined either by declaration of
own random number generator, density, cumulative distribution and quantile functions, or as result of a
convolution of two absolutely continuous distributions or by application of a mathematical operator to an absolutely
continuous distribution. An additional way is, to specify only the random number generator. The function `RtoDPQ`

then
approximates the three remaining slots d, p and q by random sampling.

##### Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form `new("AbscontDistribution", r, d, p, q)`

.
The result of this call is an absolutely continuous distribution.

##### Extends

Class `"UnivariateDistribution"`

, directly.
Class `"Distribution"`

, by class `"UnivariateDistribution"`

.

##### Examples

```
N = Norm() # N is a normal distribution with mean=0 and sd=1.
E = Exp() # E is an exponential distribution with rate=1.
A1 = E+1 # a new absolutely continuous distributions with exact slots d, p, q
A2 = A1*3 # a new absolutely continuous distributions with exact slots d, p, q
A3 = N*0.9 + E*0.1 # a new absolutely continuous distribution with approximated slots d, p, q
r(A3)(1) # one random number generated from this distribution, e.g. -0.7150937
d(A3)(0) # The (approximated) density for x=0 is 0.4379882.
p(A3)(0) # The (approximated) probability that x <= 0 is 0.4562021.
q(A3)(.1) # The (approximated) 10 percent quantile is 0.1.
