The Logistic Distribution

Description

Random generation for the Logistic distribution with parameters location and scale.

This generator is called by function gensample to create random variables based on its parameters.

Details

If location or scale are omitted, they assume the default values of 0 and 1 respectively.

The Logistic distribution with location = μ and scale = s has distribution function

F(x) = 1 / (1 + e^(-(x - μ)/s))

and density

f(x) = 1/s e^(-(x - μ)/s) (1 + e^(-(x - μ)/s))^-2

It is a long-tailed distribution with mean μ and variance (π^2)/3 s^2.
