Quantiles of Weighted Empirical Cumulative Distribution Function

Compute quantiles of a weighted empirical cumulative distribution function.

Keywords
spatial, nonparametric
Usage
# S3 method for ewcdf
quantile(x, probs = seq(0, 1, 0.25),
                 names = TRUE, …,
                 normalise = TRUE, type=1)
Arguments
x

A weighted empirical cumulative distribution function (object of class "ewcdf", produced by ewcdf) for which the quantiles are desired.

probs

probabilities for which the quantiles are desired. A numeric vector of values between 0 and 1.

names

Logical. If TRUE, the resulting vector of quantiles is annotated with names corresponding to probs.

Ignored.

normalise

Logical value indicating whether x should first be normalised so that it ranges between 0 and 1.

type

Integer specifying the type of quantile to be calculated, as explained in quantile.default. Only types 1 and 2 are currently implemented.

Details

This is a method for the generic quantile function for the class ewcdf of empirical weighted cumulative distribution functions.

The quantile for a probability p is computed as the right-continuous inverse of the cumulative distribution function x (assuming type=1, the default).

If normalise=TRUE (the default), the weighted cumulative function x is first normalised to have total mass 1 so that it can be interpreted as a cumulative probability distribution function.

Value

Numeric vector of quantiles, of the same length as probs.
