Introduction to the survobj Package

by John Aponte


This package defines a set of classes that encapsulate survival distributions

The objects of the class SURVIVAL encapsulate distributions of survival times. Each class has its own set of parameters but once the SURVIVAL object is defined, they have access to the same functions to calculate:

There are several functions to plot the distributions


The current factories are implemented:

See the vignettes for examples on the use on simulation of survival data.
