Mode

Negative binomial distribution mode.

The mode for a negative-binomial random variable is

where r is the number of successes until experiment is stopped and p is the success probability in each trial. The random variable X denotes the number of failures until the r success is reached.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/stats-base-dists-negative-binomial-mode

Usage

var mode = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-negative-binomial-mode' );

mode( r, p )

Returns the mode of a negative binomial distribution with parameters r (number of successes until experiment is stopped) and p (success probability).

var v = mode( 100, 0.2 );
// returns 396

v = mode( 50, 0.5 );
// returns 49

If provided NaN as any argument, the function returns NaN.

var v = mode( NaN, 0.5 );
// returns NaN

v = mode( 20, NaN );
// returns NaN

If provided a r which is not a positive number, the function returns NaN.

var v = mode( -2.0, 0.5 );
// returns NaN

If provided a success probability p outside of [0,1], the function returns NaN.

var v = mode( 20, -1.0 );
// returns NaN

v = mode( 20, 1.5 );
// returns NaN

Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var mode = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-negative-binomial-mode' );

var v;
var i;
var r;
var p;

for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) {
r = randu() * 100;
p = randu();
v = mode( r, p );
console.log( 'r: %d, p: %d, mode(X;r,p): %d', r, p.toFixed( 4 ), v.toFixed( 4 ) );
}

Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
