LGAMMA3: Log-Pearson Type III Distribution

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

Description

Density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the log-Pearson type III distribution with shape1, shape2, and scale parameters equal to shape, scale, and thres, respectively.

dlgamma3(x,shape=1,scale=1,thres=1,log=FALSE)
plgamma3(q,shape=1,scale=1,thres=1,lower.tail=TRUE,log.p=FALSE)
qlgamma3(p,shape=1,scale=1,thres=1,lower.tail=TRUE,log.p=FALSE)
rlgamma3(n,shape=1,scale=1,thres=1)

Arguments

x,q

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

n

number of observations.

shape

shape1 parameter.

scale

shape2 parameter.

thres

scale parameter.

log,log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x],otherwise, P[X > x].

Details

If Y is a random variable distributed according to a gamma distribution (with shape and scale parameters), then X = exp(Y+m) has a log-Pearson type III distribution with shape1 and shape2 parameters corresponding to the shape and 1/scale parameteres of Y, and with scale parameter m.

Value

dlgamma3 gives the density, plgamma3 gives the distribution function, qlgamma3 gives the quantile function, and rlgamma3 generates random deviates.
