computes the x-axis and y-axis values of the generalized RSV curve of maximum inequality for negative attributes.

1 |

`z` |
a vector of attributes containing negative elements |

`w` |
a vector containing the weights associated with the elements of the attribute vector |

`plot` |
logical. If TRUE the generalized RSV curve of maximum inequality is plotted |

`GRSVc(z,w)`

provides the points of the generalized RSV curve of maximum inequality.

A list of class `GRSVc`

with the following components:

`Generalized RSV (maximum inequality) x-axis points` |
vector with the x-axis values of the generalized RSV curve of maximum inequality |

`Generalized RSV (maximum inequality) y-axis points` |
vector with the y-axis values of the generalized RSV curve of maximum inequality. |

If the vector `w`

contains unitary elements, the plot of the generalized RSV curve of maximum inequality is obtained as `GRSVc(z,plot=TRUE)`
