Density, distribution function, quantile function, random generation, expectile function and expectile distribution function for a family of distributions for which expectiles and quantiles coincide.

`ncp` |
non centrality parameter and mean of the distribution. |

`s` |
scaling parameter, has to be positive. |

`z, e` |
vector of quantiles / expectiles. |

`q, asy` |
vector of asymmetries / probabilities. |

`n` |
number of observations. If length(n) > 1, the length is taken to be the number required. |

This distribution has the cumulative distribution function:
* F(x;ncp,s) = \frac{1}{2}(1 + sgn(\frac{x-ncp}{s}) √{1 - \frac{2}{2 + (\frac{x-ncp}{s})^2}}) *

and the density:
* f(x;ncp,s) = \frac{1}{s}( \frac{1}{2 + (\frac{x-ncp}{s})^2} )^\frac{3}{2}
*

It has infinite variance, still can be scaled by the parameter `s`

.
It has mean `ncp`

.
In the canonical parameters it is equal to a students-t distribution with 2 degrees of freedom.
For * s = √{2} * it is equal to a distribution introduced by Koenker(2005).

`demq`

gives the density, `pemq`

and `peemq`

give the distribution function,
`qemq`

gives the quantile function, `eemq`

computes the expectiles numerically and is only provided for completeness,
since the quantiles = expectiles can be determined analytically using `qemq`

,
and `remq`

generates random deviates.
