next_discrete() and prev_discrete() find the n discrete values in a distribution next to a reference point. num_discretes() finds the number of discrete values within a range. has_infinite_discretes() checks whether there are an infinite amount of discrete values between a range of values.

next_discrete(distribution, from, n = 1L, include_from = FALSE)

prev_discrete(distribution, from, n = 1L, include_from = FALSE)

num_discretes(distribution, from, to, include_from, include_to)

has_infinite_discretes(distribution, from = -Inf, to = Inf)




from, to

Reference values.


Number of discrete values to find.

include_from, include_to

Logical; should the from value be included in the query? Should the to value?


For next_discrete() and prev_discrete(), a vector of all available discrete points satisfying the query. If less values are available than asked via n, only those values are returned. If infinite values satisfy the query, an error is thrown; NaN occurs when no one particular discrete value follows, such as when asking for the integer that comes before infinity. For num_discretes(), a single non-negative integer, possibly infinite. Possibly also NA_integer_ if there's not enough information to determine this. For has_infinite_discretes(), a single logical, possibly NA if there's not enough information to determine this.


next_discrete(dst_pois(1), from = 1.3)
#> [1] 2
prev_discrete(dst_pois(1), from = 3, n = 10)
#> [1] 2 1 0
next_discrete(dst_norm(0, 1), from = 1.3, n = 4)
#> numeric(0)
