# qPiecewisePareto: Quantile Function of the Piecewise Pareto Distribution In Pareto: The Pareto, Piecewise Pareto and Generalized Pareto Distribution

## Description

Calculates the quantile function of a piecewise Pareto distribution

## Usage

 `1` ```qPiecewisePareto(p, t, alpha, truncation = NULL, truncation_type = "lp") ```

## Arguments

 `p` Numeric. The function evaluates the quantile function at `p`. `t` Numeric vector. Thresholds of the piecewise Pareto distribution. `alpha` Numeric vector. `alpha[i]` is the Pareto alpha in excess of `t[i]`. `truncation` Numeric. If `truncation` is not `NULL` and `truncation > t`, then the distribution is truncated at `truncation`. `truncation_type` Character. If `truncation_type = "wd"` then the whole distribution is truncated. If `truncation_type = "lp"` then a truncated Pareto is used for the last piece.

## Value

Quantile function of the piecewise Pareto distribution with parameter vectors `t` and `alpha` evaluated at `p`

## Examples

 ```1 2 3 4 5 6``` ```t <- c(1000, 2000, 3000) alpha <- c(1, 1.5, 2) p <- 0:10 * 0.1 qPiecewisePareto(p, t, alpha) qPiecewisePareto(p, t, alpha, truncation = 5000, truncation_type = "lp") qPiecewisePareto(p, t, alpha, truncation = 5000, truncation_type = "wd") ```
