region_distance()
computes distance between pair of regions.summ_center()
gets new method “midrange” with corresponding new summ_midrange()
function. It returns a mean of left and right edges of support.summ_distance()
gets new method “avgdist”. It computes average distance between sample values from inputs.summ_distance()
with method “avgdist”).new_p()
and new_q()
now work more accurately in case of dirac-like functions.form_mix()
now uses new algorithm of discontinuity approximation, which enables proper handling of distributions with “touching” supports.form_estimate()
gets argument estimate
renamed to stat
to avoid possibly confusing word duplication.form_retype()
gets default value NULL
of type
, which means taking opposite of input’s type. This usage seems to be the most common.form_retype()
gets new default method “value” that preserves ratio of d-function values at certain “x” points. It is more robust than previous options.summ_spread()
gets new method “range” with corresponding new summ_range()
function. It returns a range length of “x” values within region of positive probability.form_recenter()
and form_respread()
are implemented. They change center and spread of distribution (with linear transformation) to be equal to some desired value.
