Description

Variance, standard deviation and interquantile range for the BMT distribution, with p3 and p4 tails weights (κ_l and κ_r) or asymmetry-steepness parameters (ζ and ξ) and p1 and p2 domain (minimum and maximum) or location-scale (mean and standard deviation) parameters.

BMTvar(p3, p4, type.p.3.4 = "t w", p1 = 0, p2 = 1, type.p.1.2 = "c-d")

BMTsd(p3, p4, type.p.3.4 = "t w", p1 = 0, p2 = 1, type.p.1.2 = "c-d")

BMTiqr(p3, p4, type.p.3.4 = "t w", p1 = 0, p2 = 1, type.p.1.2 = "c-d")

Arguments

p3, p4

tails weights (κ_l and κ_r) or asymmetry-steepness (ζ and ξ) parameters of the BMT ditribution.

type.p.3.4

type of parametrization asociated to p3 and p4. "t w" means tails weights parametrization (default) and "a-s" means asymmetry-steepness parametrization.

p1, p2

domain (minimum and maximum) or location-scale (mean and standard deviation) parameters of the BMT ditribution.

type.p.1.2

type of parametrization asociated to p1 and p2. "c-d" means domain parametrization (default) and "l-s" means location-scale parametrization.

Details

See References.

Value

BMTvar gives the variance, BMTsd the standard deviation and BMTiqr the interquantile range for the BMT distribution.

The arguments are recycled to the length of the result. Only the first elements of type.p.3.4 and type.p.1.2 are used.

If type.p.3.4 == "t w", p3 < 0 and p3 > 1 are errors and return NaN.

If type.p.3.4 == "a-s", p3 < -1 and p3 > 1 are errors and return NaN.

p4 < 0 and p4 > 1 are errors and return NaN.

If type.p.1.2 == "c-d", p1 >= p2 is an error and returns NaN.

If type.p.1.2 == "l-s", p2 <= 0 is an error and returns NaN.
