## Finite mixture of inverse Gaussian Distribution

### Description

Density (PDF), distribution function (CDF), and hazard function for Finite mixture of inverse Gaussian Distributions.

### Usage

dmixinvgauss(x, theta = .2, lambda = .1, gamma = .05, forceExpectation = F)
pmixinvgauss(q, theta = .2, lambda = .1, gamma = .05, forceExpectation = F)
mixinvgaussHazard(x, theta = .2, lambda = .1, gamma = .05, forceExpectation = F)


### Arguments

 x, q vector of quantiles. theta, lambda, gamma parameters, see 'Details'. forceExpectation logical; if TRUE, the expectation of the distribution is forced to be 1..

### Details

The finite mixture of inverse Gaussian distributions was used by Gomes-Deniz and Perez-Rodrigues (201X) for ACD-models. Its PDF is:

f(x) = \frac{\gamma + x}{\gamma + \theta} \sqrt{\frac{\lambda}{2 \pi x^3}} \exp \left[ - \frac{\lambda(x-\theta)^2}{2 x \theta^2}\right].

If forceExpectation = TRUE the distribution is transformed by dividing the random variable with its expectation and using the change of variable function.
