Class "Gammad"

The Gammad distribution with parameters shape $= a$, by default = 1, and scale $= s$, by default = 1, has density $$ d(x)= \frac{1}{{\sigma}^{\alpha}\Gamma(\alpha)} {x}^{\alpha-1} e^{-x/\sigma}% $$ for $x > 0$, $a > 0$ and $s > 0$. The mean and variance are $E(X) = a*s$ and $Var(X) = a*s^2$. C.f. rgamma

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form Gammad(scale, shape). This object is a gamma distribution.

Slots

img
Object of class "Reals": The space of the image of this distribution has got dimension 1 and the name "Real Space".
param
Object of class "GammaParameter": the parameter of this distribution (scale and shape), declared at its instantiation
r
Object of class "function": generates random numbers (calls function rgamma)
d
Object of class "function": density function (calls function dgamma)
p
Object of class "function": cumulative function (calls function pgamma)
q
Object of class "function": inverse of the cumulative function (calls function qgamma)
.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

initialize
signature(.Object = "Gammad"): initialize method
scale
signature(object = "Gammad"): returns the slot scale of the parameter of the distribution
scale<-
signature(object = "Gammad"): modifies the slot scale of the parameter of the distribution
shape
signature(object = "Gammad"): returns the slot shape of the parameter of the distribution
shape<-
signature(object = "Gammad"): modifies the slot shape of the parameter of the distribution
+
signature(e1 = "Gammad", e2 = "Gammad"): For the Gamma distribution we use its closedness under convolutions.
*
signature(e1 = "Gammad", e2 = "numeric"): For the Gamma distribution we use its closedness under positive scaling transformations.

Examples
G <- Gammad(scale=1,shape=1) # G is a gamma distribution with scale=1 and shape=1.
r(G)(1) # one random number generated from this distribution, e.g. 0.1304441
d(G)(1) # Density of this distribution is 0.3678794 for x=1.
p(G)(1) # Probability that x<1 is 0.6321206.
q(G)(.1) # Probability that x<0.1053605 is 0.1.
scale(G) # scale of this distribution is 1.
scale(G) <- 2 # scale of this distribution is now 2.
