Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Any raw, central or standarised moment, the moment-generating function and the characteristic function 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.

  type.p.1.2 = "c-d")

BMTchf(s, p3, p4, type.p.3.4 = "t w", p1 = 0, p2 = 1,

mBMT(order, p3, p4, type.p.3.4, p1, p2, type.p.1.2)

Arguments

p3, p4

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

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.

order

order of the moment.

type

type of the moment: raw, central or standardised (default).

method

method to obtain the moment: exact formula or Chebyshev-Gauss quadrature (default).

s

variable for the moment-generating and characteristic functions.

Details

See References.

Value

BMTmoment gives any raw, central or standarised moment, BMTmgf the moment-generating function and BMTchf the characteristic function

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