 This function takes a maxlogL model and computes the cumulative hazard function (CHF) using the estimated parameters.

## Usage

cum_hazard.maxlogL(object, ...)

## Arguments

object

an object of maxlogL class obtained by fitting a model with maxlogLreg.

...

further arguments for cum_hazard_fun..

## Value

the expected value of the fitted model corresponding to the distribution specified in the y_dist argument of maxlogLreg.

## Details

The CHF is computed by default using the following expression

$$H(x) = -\log \left( S(x|\hat{\theta})) \right),$$

where $$S(x|\hat{\theta})$$ is the survival function using the estimated parameters. This method relies on the cdf, i.e, the pXXX function stored in R environment, where xxx is the name of the distribution.

Notice that CHF can be computed by integration

$$H(x) = \int_0^t h(s)ds$$

Just set up a support and set method = "integration".

Other maxlogL: expected_value.maxlogL(), maxlogLreg(), maxlogL()
