Description

This function computes the parameter of a one parameter bivariate copula for a given value of Kendall's tau.

Usage

1

Arguments

tau

Kendall's tau value (numeric in [-1,1]).

family

An integer defining the bivariate copula family:
0 = independence copula
1 = Gaussian copula
3 = Clayton copula
4 = Gumbel copula
5 = Frank copula
6 = Joe copula
13 = rotated Clayton copula (180 degrees; “survival Clayton”)
14 = rotated Gumbel copula (180 degrees; “survival Gumbel”)
16 = rotated Joe copula (180 degrees; “survival Joe”)
23 = rotated Clayton copula (90 degrees)
24 = rotated Gumbel copula (90 degrees)
26 = rotated Joe copula (90 degrees)
33 = rotated Clayton copula (270 degrees)
34 = rotated Gumbel copula (270 degrees)
36 = rotated Joe copula (270 degrees)
Note that two parameter bivariate copula families cannot be used.

Value

Parameter corresponding to the bivariate copula family and the value of Kendall's tau (τ).
