QBICDFName:
with p, , and m denoting the shape parameters. The quasibinomial type I distribution is used to model Bernoulli trials. The parameter p denotes the initial probability of success, m denotes the number of Bernoulli trials, and denotes how the probability of success increases or decreases with the number of successes. Specificially, when = 0, the quasibinomial type I distribution reduces to the binomial distribution. When ≠ 0, the probability of success in the xth trial becomes
The cumulative distribution function is computed using the following recurrence relation given by Consul and Famoye:
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> where <x> is a positive integer variable, number, or parameter; <p> is a number, parameter, or variable in the range (0,1) that specifies the first shape parameter; <phi> is a number, parameter, or variable that specifies the second shape parameter; <m> is a number, parameter, or variable that specifies the third shape parameter; <y> is a variable or a parameter (depending on what <x> is) where the computed quasi binomial type I cdf value is stored; and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.
