dberdev(x,dnum = 1)
pberdev(q,dnum = 1)
qberdev(p,dnum = 1)
rberdev(n,dnum = 1)

Arguments

dnum

number of distribution as in Berlinet/Devroye (1994), Section 3.2.

x,q

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

n

number of observations.

Details

These functions implement the 28 distributions from Berlinet and Devroye (1994), Section 3.2, which are:

dnum == 1 "uniform" on [0,1] as in stats-package

dnum == 2 "exponential" as in stats-package

dnum == 3 "Maxwell"

dnum == 4 "double exponential"

dnum == 5 "logistic" as in stats-package

dnum == 6 "Cauchy" as in stats-package

dnum == 7 "extreme value"

dnum == 8 "infinite peak"

dnum == 9 "Pareto"

dnum == 10 "symmetric Pareto"

dnum == 11 "normal" as in stats-package

dnum == 12 "lognormal"

dnum == 13 "uniform scale mixture"

dnum == 14 "Matterhorn"

dnum == 15 "logarithmic peak"

dnum == 16 "isosceles triangle"

dnum == 17 "beta 2,2" as in stats-package

dnum == 18 "chi-square 1" as in stats-package

dnum == 19 "normal cubed"

dnum == 20 "inverse exponential"

dnum == 21 "Marronite"

dnum == 22 "skewed bimodal"

dnum == 23 "claw"

dnum == 24 "smooth comb"

dnum == 25 "caliper"

dnum == 26 "trimodal uniform"

dnum == 27 "sawtooth"

dnum == 28 "bilogarithmic peak"

Value

dberdev

gives the density,

pberdev

gives the distribution function,

qberdev

gives the quantile function, and

rberdev

generates random deviates.
