Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

This function implements pseudo-random number generation for a Pareto distribution with pdf

*f(x|α,β)=\frac{ab^{a}}{x^{a+1}}*

for *0 < b ≤q x < ∞* and *a>0* where *a* and *b* are the shape and location parameters, respectively.

`nrep` |
Number of data points to generate. |

`shape` |
Shape parameter of the desired Pareto distribution. |

`location` |
Location parameter of the desired Pareto distribution. |

A list of length five containing generated data, the theoretical mean, the empirical mean, the theoretical variance, and the empirical variance with names y, theo.mean, emp.mean, theo.var, and emp.var, respectively.
