The Package ‘HyperbolicDist’: Summary Information

Description

This package provides a collection of functions for working with the hyperbolic and related distributions.

For the hyperbolic distribution functions are provided for the density function, distribution function, quantiles, random number generation and fitting the hyperbolic distribution to data (hyperbFit). The function hyperbChangePars will interchange parameter values between different parameterisations. The mean, variance, skewness, kurtosis and mode of a given hyperbolic distribution are given by hyperbMean, hyperbVar, hyperbSkew, hyperbKurt, and hyperbMode respectively. For assessing the fit of the hyperbolic distribution to a set of data, the log-histogram is useful. See logHist. Q-Q and P-P plots are also provided for assessing the fit of a hyperbolic distribution. A Cr<e4>mer-von~Mises test of the goodness of fit of data to a hyperbolic distribution is given by hyperbCvMTest. S3 print, plot and summary methods are provided for the output of hyperbFit.

For the generalized hyperbolic distribution functions are provided for the density function, distribution function, quantiles, and for random number generation. The function ghypChangePars will interchange parameter values between different parameterisations. The mean, variance, and mode of a given generalized hyperbolic distribution are given by ghypMean, ghypVar, ghypSkew, ghypKurt, and ghypMode respectively. Q-Q and P-P plots are also provided for assessing the fit of a generalized hyperbolic distribution.

For the generalized inverse Gaussian distribution functions are provided for the density function, distribution function, quantiles, and for random number generation. The function gigChangePars will interchange parameter values between different parameterisations. The mean, variance, skewness, kurtosis and mode of a given generalized inverse Gaussian distribution are given by gigMean, gigVar, gigSkew, gigKurt, and gigMode respectively. Q-Q and P-P plots are also provided for assessing the fit of a generalized inverse Gaussian distribution.

For the skew-Laplace distribution functions are provided for the density function, distribution function, quantiles, and for random number generation. Q-Q and P-P plots are also provided for assessing the fit of a skew-Laplace distribution.
