skewnormUC: Skew-Normal Distribution

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Density and random generation for the univariate skew-normal distribution.

Usage

1
2
dskewnorm(x, location = 0, scale = 1, shape = 0, log = FALSE)
rskewnorm(n, location = 0, scale = 1, shape = 0)

Arguments

x

vector of quantiles.

n

number of observations. Same as runif.

location

The location parameter xi. A vector.

scale

The scale parameter w. A positive vector.

shape

The shape parameter. It is called alpha in skewnormal.

log

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

Details

See skewnormal, which currently only estimates the shape parameter. More generally here, Z = xi + w * Y where Y has a standard skew-normal distribution (see skewnormal), xi is the location parameter and w is the scale parameter.

Value

dskewnorm gives the density, rskewnorm generates random deviates.

Note

The default values of all three parameters corresponds to the skew-normal being the standard normal distribution.
