Arguments
object

object of class "Distribution"

fun

if missing the (conditional) expectation is computed else the (conditional) expection of fun is computed.

cond

if not missing the conditional expectation given cond is computed.

Nsim

number of MC simulations used to determine the expectation.

rel.tol

relative tolerance for distrExIntegrate.

low

lower bound of integration range.

upp

upper bound of integration range.

lowerTruncQuantile

lower quantile for quantile based integration range.

upperTruncQuantile

upper quantile for quantile based integration range.

IQR.fac

factor for scale based integration range (i.e.; median of the distribution \(\pm\)IQR.fac\(\times\)IQR).

additional arguments to fun

useApply

logical: should sapply, respectively apply be used to evaluate fun.

withCond

logical: is cond in the argument list of fun.

.withLeftTail

logical: should left tail (falling into quantile range [0,0.02]) be computed separately to enhance accuracy?

.withRightTail

logical: should right tail (falling into quantile range [0.98,1]) be computed separately to enhance accuracy?

diagnostic

logical; if TRUE, the return value obtains an attribute "diagnostic" with diagnostic information on the integration, i.e., a list with entries method ("integrate" or "GLIntegrate"), call, result (the complete return value of the method), args (the args with which the method was called), and time (the time to compute the integral).

Details

The precision of the computations can be controlled via certain global options; cf. distrExOptions. Also note that arguments low and upp should be given as named arguments in order to prevent them to be matched by arguments fun or cond. Also the result, when arguments low or upp is given, is the unconditional value of the expectation; no conditioning with respect to low <= object <= upp is done.

For the Cauchy, the Gamma and Weibull distribution for integration with missing argument cond but given argument fun, we use integration on [0,1] (i.e, via the respective probability transformation). This done via helper function .qtlIntegrate, where both arguments .withLeftTail and .withRightTail are TRUE for the Cauchy and Gamma distributions, and only .withRightTail ist TRUE for the Weibull distribution.

Diagnostics on the involved integrations are available if argument diagnostic is TRUE. Then there is attribute diagnostic attached to the return value, which may be inspected and accessed through showDiagnostic and getDiagnostic.

Value

The (conditional) expectation is computed.
