Calculate Moments of the Generalized Hyperbolic Distribution

Description

This function can be used to calculate raw moments, mu moments, central moments and moments about any other given location for the generalized hyperbolic distribution.

Usage

ghypMom(order, Theta, momType = "raw", about = 0)

Arguments

order

Numeric. The order of the moment to be calculated. Not permitted to be a vector. Must be a positive whole number except for moments about zero.

Theta

Numeric. The parameter vector specifying the GIG distribution. Of the form c(lambda, alpha, beta, delta, mu) (see dghyp).

momType

Common types of moments to be calculated, default is "raw". See Details.

about

Numeric. The point around which the moment is to be calculated, default is 0. See Details.

Details

Checking whether order is a whole number is carried out using the function is.wholenumber.

momType can be either "raw" (moments about zero), "mu" (moments about mu), or "central" (moments about mean). If one of these moment types is specified, then there is no need to specify the about value. For moments about any other location, the about value must be specified. In the case that both momType and about are specified and contradicting, the function will always calculate the moments based on about rather than momType.

To calculate moments of the generalized hyperbolic distribution, the function first calculates mu moments by the formula defined below and then transforms mu moments to central moments or raw moments or moments about any other location as required by calling momChangeAbout.

The mu moments are obtained from the recursion formula given in Scott, W<fc>rtz and Tran (2008).

Value

The moment specified.

Examples

Theta <- c(2,2,1,2,1)
mu <- Theta[5]
### mu moments
(m1 <- ghypMean(Theta))
m1 - mu
ghypMom(1, Theta, momType = "mu")
momIntegrated("ghyp", order = 1, param = Theta, about = mu)
ghypMom(2, Theta, momType = "mu")
momIntegrated("ghyp", order = 2, param = Theta, about = mu)
ghypMom(10, Theta, momType = "mu")
momIntegrated("ghyp", order = 10, param = Theta, about = mu)

### raw moments
ghypMean(Theta)
ghypMom(1, Theta, momType = "raw")
momIntegrated("ghyp", order = 1, param = Theta, about = 0)
ghypMom(2, Theta, momType = "raw")
momIntegrated("ghyp", order = 2, param = Theta, about = 0)
ghypMom(10, Theta, momType = "raw")
momIntegrated("ghyp", order = 10, param = Theta, about = 0)

### central moments
ghypMom(1, Theta, momType = "central")
momIntegrated("ghyp", order = 1, param = Theta, about = m1)
ghypVar(Theta)
ghypMom(2, Theta, momType = "central")
momIntegrated("ghyp", order = 2, param = Theta, about = m1)
ghypMom(10, Theta, momType = "central")
momIntegrated("ghyp", order = 10, param = Theta, about = m1)
