RtoDPQ.d

function to do get empirical density, cumulative distribution and quantile function from random numbers

Usage
RtoDPQ.d(r, e = RtoDPQ.e)
Arguments
r
the random number generator
e
$10^e$ numbers are generated, a higher number leads to a better result.
Details

RtoDPQ.d generates $10^e$ random numbers, by default $e =$ RtoDPQ.e which are used to produce a density, cdf and quantile function. Of course, the results are usually not exact as they rely on random numbers.

Value

  • RtoDPQ returns a list of functions.
  • dfundensity
  • pfuncumulative distribution function
  • qfunquantile function

Note

Use RtoDPQ for absolutely continuous and RtoDPQ.d for discrete distributions.

Examples
rn2 <- function(n){rnorm(n)^2}
x <- RtoDPQ(r = rn2, e = 4, n = 512)
# returns density, cumulative distribution and quantile function of
# squared standard  normal distribution

x$dfun(4)
RtoDPQ(r = rn2, e = 5, n = 1024) # for a better result

rp2 <- function(n){rpois(n, lambda = 1)^2}
x <- RtoDPQ.d(r = rp2, e = 5)
# returns density, cumulative distribution and quantile function of
# squared Poisson distribution with parameter lambda=1
