Description

Density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the Topp-Leone distribution.

dtopple(x, shape, log = FALSE)
ptopple(q, shape, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qtopple(p, shape)
rtopple(n, shape)

Arguments

x, q, p, n

Same as Uniform.

shape

the (shape) parameter, which lies in (0, 1).

log

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

lower.tail, log.p

Same meaning as in pnorm or qnorm.

Details

See topple, the VGAM family function for estimating the (shape) parameter s by maximum likelihood estimation, for the formula of the probability density function.

Value

dtopple gives the density, ptopple gives the distribution function, qtopple gives the quantile function, and rtopple generates random deviates.

Note

The Topp-Leone distribution is related to the triangle distribution.
