This function is deprecated as a user-facing function (while its
functionality is still used internally). Construct distributions using
the corresponding distribution function such as `Gamma()`

, `LogNormal()`

,
`Normal()`

or `Fixed()`

instead.

## Arguments

- distribution
Character, defaults to "lognormal". The (discretised) distribution to be used. Can be "lognormal", "gamma", "normal" or "fixed". The corresponding parameters (defined in

`natural_params()`

) are passed as`params_mean`

, and their uncertainty as`params_sd`

.- params_mean
Numeric. Central values of the parameters of the distribution as defined in [natural_params().

- params_sd
Numeric. Standard deviations of the parameters of the distribution as defined in [natural_params().

- max
Numeric, maximum value of the distribution. The distribution will be truncated at this value. Default:

`Inf`

, i.e. no maximum.- pmf
Numeric, a vector of values that represent the (nonparametric) probability mass function of the delay (starting with 0); defaults to an empty vector corresponding to a parametric specification of the distribution (using

`params_mean`

, and`params_sd`

.- fixed
Deprecated, use

`fix_dist()`

instead.
