##### Default procedure to fill slots d,p,q given r for Lebesgue decomposed distributions

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

Keywords
distribution, arith, math
##### Usage
RtoDPQ.LC(r, e = getdistrOption("RtoDPQ.e"), n = getdistrOption("DefaultNrGridPoints"))
##### Arguments
r
the random number generator
e
$10^e$ numbers are generated, a higher number leads to a better result.
n
The number of grid points used to create the approximated functions, a higher number leads to a better result.
##### Details

RtoDPQ.LC generates $10^e$ random numbers, by default $$e = RtoDPQ.e$$. Replicates are assumed to be part of the discrete part, unique values to be part of the a.c. part of the distribution. For the replicated ones, we generate a discrete distribution by a call to DiscreteDistribution. The a.c. density is formed on the basis of $n$ points using approxfun and density (applied to the unique values), by default $$n = DefaultNrGridPoints$$. The cumulative distribution function is based on all random variables, and, as well as the quantile function, is also created on the basis of $n$ points using approxfun and ecdf. Of course, the results are usually not exact as they rely on random numbers.

##### Value

• RtoDPQ.LC returns an object of class UnivarLebDecDistribution.

##### Note

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

rn2 <- function(n)ifelse(rbinom(n,1,0.3),rnorm(n)^2,rbinom(n,4,.3))
x <- RtoDPQ.LC(r = rn2, e = 4, n = 512)
plot(x)
# returns density, cumulative distribution and quantile function of
# squared standard normal distribution
d.discrete(x)(4)
x2 <- RtoDPQ.LC(r = rn2, e = 5, n = 1024) # for a better result
plot(x2)
