# DiscreteDistribution

From distr v2.0.6
by Peter Ruckdeschel

##### Generating function "DiscreteDistribution"

Generates an object of class `"DiscreteDistribution"`

- Keywords
- distribution

##### Usage

```
DiscreteDistribution(supp, prob, .withArith=FALSE, .withSim=FALSE)
DiscreteDistribution(supp)
```

##### Arguments

- supp
- numeric vector which forms the support of the discrete distribution.
- prob
- vector of probability weights for the
elements of
`supp`

. - .withArith
- normally not set by the user, but if determining the entries
`supp`

,`prob`

distributional arithmetics was involved, you may set this to`TRUE`

. - .withSim
- normally not set by the user, but if determining the entries
`supp`

,`prob`

simulations were involved, you may set this to`TRUE`

.

##### Details

If `prob`

is missing, all elements in `supp`

are equally weighted.

##### Value

- Object of class
`"DiscreteDistribution"`

##### Note

Working with a computer, we use a finite interval as support which carries at least mass `1-getdistrOption("TruncQuantile")`

.

##### synopsis

DiscreteDistribution(supp, prob, .withArith = FALSE, .withSim = FALSE)

##### concept

- discrete distribution
- generating function

##### Examples

```
# Dirac-measure at 0
D1 <- DiscreteDistribution(supp = 0)
D1
# simple discrete distribution
D2 <- DiscreteDistribution(supp = c(1:5), prob = c(0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.2, 0.2))
D2
plot(D2)
```
