Create an normal distribution

create_normal_distr(
  id = NA,
  mean = 0,
  sigma = 1,
  value = NA,
  lower = NA,
  upper = NA
)

Arguments

id

the distribution's ID

mean

the mean parameter, a numeric value. For advanced usage, use the structure as returned by create_mean_param

sigma

the sigma parameter, a numeric value. For advanced usage, use the structure as returned by create_sigma_param

value

the initial value for the MCMC

lower

the lower bound, the lowest possible value

upper

an upper limit of the uniform distribution. If the upper limits needs to be infinity, set upper to Inf.

Value

a normal distribution
