# alpha.compute {LCAextend}

### Description

computes cumulative logistic coefficients using probabilities.

### Usage

alpha.compute(p)

### Arguments

- p
- a vector of probabilities (positive entries summing to 1).

### Details

If `p`

has one value (equal to 1) `alpha.compute`

returns `NA`

, if it has `S (S>=2)`

values, `alpha.compute`

returns `S-1`

coefficients `alpha`

such that if `Y`

is a random variable taking values in `{1,...,S}`

with probabilities `p`

, coefficients `alpha[i]`

are given by: for all `i<=S-1`

.

### Values

The function returns `alpha`

: a vector of `S-1`

cumulative logistic coefficients.

### See Also

`alpha.compute`

is the inverse function of `p.compute`
