add_err.Rd
Normally distributed errors are added to data predicted for a specific
degradation model using mkinpredict
. The variance of the error
may depend on the predicted value and is specified as a standard deviation.
add_err( prediction, sdfunc, secondary = c("M1", "M2"), n = 1000, LOD = 0.1, reps = 2, digits = 1, seed = NA )
prediction  A prediction from a kinetic model as produced by


sdfunc  A function taking the predicted value as its only argument and returning a standard deviation that should be used for generating the random error terms for this value. 
secondary  The names of state variables that should have an initial value of zero 
n  The number of datasets to be generated. 
LOD  The limit of detection (LOD). Values that are below the LOD after adding the random error will be set to NA. 
reps  The number of replicates to be generated within the datasets. 
digits  The number of digits to which the values will be rounded. 
seed  The seed used for the generation of random numbers. If NA, the seed is not set. 
A list of datasets compatible with mmkin
, i.e. the
components of the list are datasets compatible with mkinfit
.
