Class "Distribution"

The Distribution-class is the mother-class of class UnivariateDistribution.

Keywords
distribution
Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("Distribution").

Slots

img
Object of class "rSpace": the space of the image
param
Object of class "OptionalParameter": the parameter
r
Object of class "function": generates random numbers
d
Object of class "OptionalFunction": density function
p
Object of class "OptionalFunction": cumulative distribution function
q
Object of class "OptionalFunction": quantile function
.withArith
logical: used internally to issue warnings as to interpretation of arithmetics
.withSim
logical: used internally to issue warnings as to accuracy
.logExact
logical: used internally to flag the case where there are explicit formulae for the log version of density, cdf, and quantile function
.lowerExact
logical: used internally to flag the case where there are explicit formulae for the lower tail version of cdf and quantile function
Symmetry
object of class "DistributionSymmetry"; used internally to avoid unnecessary calculations.

Methods

img
signature(object = "Distribution"): returns the space of the image
param
signature(object = "Distribution"): returns the parameter
r
signature(object = "Distribution"): returns the random number generator
d
signature(object = "Distribution"): returns the density function
p
signature(object = "Distribution"): returns the cumulative distribution function
q
signature(object = "Distribution"): returns the quantile function
.logExact
signature(object = "Distribution"): returns slot .logExact if existing; else tries to convert the object to a newer version of its class by conv2NewVersion and returns the corresponding slot of the converted object.
.lowerExact
signature(object = "Distribution"): returns slot .lowerExact if existing; else tries to convert the object to a newer version of its class by conv2NewVersion and returns the corresponding slot of the converted object.
Symmetry:
returns slot Symmetry if existing; else tries to convert the object to a newer version of its class by conv2NewVersion and returns the corresponding slot of the converted object.
