Quantiles for objects of class "density", "pred.density" or "coef.density"
## S3 method for class 'pred.density' quantile(x, probs = seq(.25,.75,.25), names = TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'coef.density' quantile(x, probs = seq(.25,.75,.25), names = TRUE, ...) ## S3 method for class 'density' quantile(x, probs = seq(.25,.75,.25), names = TRUE, normalize = TRUE, ...)

The mehtods quantile.coef.density
and quantile.pred.density
both apply quantile.density
to densities nested with object of class coef.density
or pred.density
.
The function quantile.density
applies generically to the built-in class density
(as least for versions where there is no such method in the pre-configured packages).
Note that quantile.density
relies on trapezoidal integration in order to compute the cumulative densities necessary for the calculation of quantiles.
If x
is of class density
(or a list with exactly one element), a vector with quantiles.
If x
is a list
of densities with more than one element (e.g. as resulting from pred.density
or coef.density
), then the output is a matrix of quantiles, with each matrix row corresponding to the respective density.

for a comparable function, pred.density
and density.bma
for the BMA-specific objects.
