ParetoPosStable: Computing, Fitting and Validating the PPS Distribution

Description Details References


Statistical functions to describe a Pareto Positive Stable (PPS) distribution and fit it to real data. Graphical and statistical tools to validate the fits are included.


The main function you're likely to need from ParetoPosStable is, in order to obtain a PPS fit from data. Validation can be obtain with GoF and plot.
