The log likelihood of a chi-squared density with data, x, df and ncp parameters.

likchisq(x, df, ncp = 0, log = TRUE)

Arguments

x

vector of quantiles.

df

degrees of freedom (non-negative, but can be non-integer).

ncp

non-centrality parameter (non-negative).

log

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

Value

A numeric scalar for the log likelihood of the chi-squared density given the data where df and ncp can be held constant or if vector were given vector will be returned.

Details

The log likelihood is the log of a function of parameters given the data.

Examples

likchisq(x = rchisq(n = 2, df = 4), df = 4)
