# RtoDPQ.LC

0th

Percentile

##### 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"), y = NULL)
##### 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.

y

a (numeric) vector or NULL

##### 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.

For the a.c. part, similarly to RtoDPQ we have an optional parameter y for using N. Horbenko's quantile trick: i.e.; on an equally spaced grid x.grid on [0,1], apply f(q(x)(x.grid)), write the result to y and use these values instead of simulated ones.

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.

##### Examples
# NOT RUN {
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)
# }
