Arguments

lmd

vector of skewness parameters (>0). If is 1, reduce to normal distribution.

mu

vector of location parameter. (The mode of the density)

sigma

vector of standard deviations.

Value

splitn_mean gives the mean. splitn_var gives the variance. splitn_skewness gives the skewness. splitn_kurtosis gives the kurtosis. (splitn_mean, splitn_var,splitn_skeness and splitn_kurtosis are all vectors.
