eddDist-class {edd} | R Documentation |

## Class "eddDist"

### Description

objects from this class can be used to
simulate or tabulate reference distributions for edd

### Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form `new("eddDist", ...)`

.
These objects include a simple stub (like "norm", which can
be modified to obtain the name of a generator (prepend "r"),
cdf (prepend "p"), etc.) in R.

### Slots

`stub`

:- Object of class
`"character"`

stub
of a distribution system in R, to which "r" is prepended
to get a generator, "p" to get a cdf, "q" to get a quantile
function...
`parms`

:- Object of class
`"numeric"`

named
vector of parameters for a member of the family
`median`

:- Object of class
`"numeric"`

median
of the distribution (sometimes has to be computed by simulation)
`mad`

:- Object of class
`"numeric"`

MAD
of the distribution (sometimes has to be computed by simulation)
`tag`

:- Object of class
`"character"`

an
informative character tag
`latexTag`

:- Object of class
`"character"`

an
informative character tag in latex format, which can use
subscripts, greek letters, etc.

### Methods

: accessor
- qfName

: prepend "q" to stub(x)
- qfun
`signature(e = "eddDist")`

: construct a quantile
function from the object

: accessor
- latexTag
`signature(x = "eddDist")`

: accessor
- testVec
`signature(x = "numeric", eddd = "eddDist", is.centered = "logical")`

: apply ks.test to a given vector x against the dist specified
by the eddDist components
