expgeometricUC: The Exponential Geometric Distribution

expgeomR Documentation

The Exponential Geometric Distribution

Description

Density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the exponential geometric distribution.

Usage

dexpgeom(x, scale = 1, shape, log = FALSE)
pexpgeom(q, scale = 1, shape)
qexpgeom(p, scale = 1, shape) 
rexpgeom(n, scale = 1, shape) 

Arguments

x, q

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

n

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

scale, shape

positive scale and shape parameters.

log

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

Details

See expgeometric, the VGAM family function for estimating the parameters, for the formula of the probability density function and other details.

Value

dexpgeom gives the density, pexpgeom gives the distribution function, qexpgeom gives the quantile function, and rexpgeom generates random deviates.

Note

We define scale as the reciprocal of the scale parameter used by Adamidis and Loukas (1998).
