character. Code name for copula, identical with the part after cop.

dim

integer. Copula dimension.

named arguments. Items of the copula definition list to be redefined. Argument names must NOT be cropped.

Details

Currently implemented copula families:

family CDF C(t)= par.range special cases
Farlie-Gumbel-Morgenstern prod(t)*(p*prod(1-t)+1) [-1,1] 0(Π)
Gumbel-Hougaard exp(-sum((-log(t))^p)^(1/p)) [1,Inf] 1(Π),Inf(M)
normal Φ_P(Φ^-1(t_1),...) ]-1,1[ -1(W),0(Π),1(M)
Plackett (A-sqrt(A^2-4*prod(t)*p*(p-1)))/(2*(p-1)); A=1+(p-1)*sum(t) [0,Inf] 0(W),1(Π),Inf(M)
product prod(t) Π

where Φ^-1 is quantile function of standard normal and Φ_P is CDF of multivariate normal distribution with correlation matrix P containing copula parameters.

Value

parameters

numeric vector to be used whenever parameters of copula are not supplied to procedure that use it, or as starting values in estimation.

pcopula,dcopula

function of two arguments. The first is vector of copula arguments, the another is vector of parameters.

rcopula

function of two arguments. The first is copula dimension or length of random sample (normal copula), the another is vector of parameters.

kendall,spearman

list. Correlation coefficient as function of copula parameter (coef), its inverse (icoef) and range (bounds). Available only for 1-parameter families.

lower,upper

numeric. Parameters boundary.

id

character. Identification of copula family.
