Description

Density, distribution function and random generation for the inverse Gaussian distribution.

Usage

1
2
3
dinv.gaussian(x, mu, lambda, log = FALSE)
pinv.gaussian(q, mu, lambda)
rinv.gaussian(n, mu, lambda)

Arguments

x, q

vector of quantiles.

n

number of observations. If length(n) > 1 then the length is taken to be the number required.

mu

the mean parameter.

lambda

the lambda parameter.

log

Logical. If log = TRUE then the logarithm of the density is returned.

Details

See inv.gaussianff, the VGAM family function for estimating both parameters by maximum likelihood estimation, for the formula of the probability density function.

Value

dinv.gaussian gives the density, pinv.gaussian gives the distribution function, and rinv.gaussian generates random deviates.

Note

Currently qinv.gaussian is unavailable.
