Rearrangement

Monotonize a step function by rearrangement

Keywords
regression
Usage
rearrange(f,xmin,xmax)
Arguments
f

object of class stepfun

xmin

minimum of the support of the rearranged f

xmax

maximum of the support of the rearranged f

Details

Given a stepfunction \(Q(u)\), not necessarily monotone, let \(F(y) = \int \{ Q(u) \le y \} du\) denote the associated cdf obtained by randomly evaluating \(Q\) at \(U \sim U[0,1]\). The rearranged version of \(Q\) is \(\tilde Q (u) = \inf \{ u: F(y) \ge u \}. The rearranged function inherits the right or left continuity of original stepfunction.\)

Value

Produces transformed stepfunction that is monotonic increasing.
