TLMoment(
  x,
  order = 1L,
  leftrim = 0L,
  rightrim = 0L,
  na.rm = FALSE,
  computation.method = "auto"
)

Arguments

x

numeric vector of data.

order

integer, order of Trimmed Moment, has to be greater than 1.

leftrim, rightrim

integer indicating trimming parameters, have to be greater than 0.

na.rm

logical, indicates if NAs should be removed.

computation.method

character, indicating if the computation is performed via PWMs, direct, recursive, or recurrence (see References Hosking & Balakrishnan, 2015). Possible values are auto (default, automatically choose appropriate method), pwm, direct, recursive, or recurrence. Only if empirical moments are calculated.

Value

numeric vector, empirical TL(leftrim,rightrim)-moments of orders order of x
