Estimate the association parameter of Ali-Mikhail-Haq's bivariate distribution by maximum likelihood estimation.
Link function applied to the association parameter
alpha, which is real
and -1 < alpha < 1.
Numeric. Optional initial value for alpha.
By default, an initial value is chosen internally.
If a convergence failure occurs try assigning a different value.
Assigning a value will override the argument
An integer with value
The cumulative distribution function is
P(Y1 < = y1, Y2 < = y2) = y1 * y2 / ( 1 - alpha * (1 - y1) * (1 - y2) )
for -1 < alpha < 1. The support of the function is the unit square. The marginal distributions are the standard uniform distributions. When alpha = 0 the random variables are independent. This is an Archimedean copula.
An object of class
The object is used by modelling functions such as
The response must be a two-column matrix. Currently, the fitted value is a matrix with two columns and values equal to 0.5. This is because each marginal distribution corresponds to a standard uniform distribution.
