dist-ghMode: Generalized Hyperbolic Mode In fBasics: Rmetrics - Markets and Basic Statistics

Description

Computes the mode of the generalized hyperbolic function.

Usage

 1 ghMode(alpha = 1, beta = 0, delta = 1, mu = 0, lambda = -1/2)

Arguments

 alpha, beta, delta, mu, lambda shape parameter alpha; skewness parameter beta, abs(beta) is in the range (0, alpha); scale parameter delta, delta must be zero or positive; location parameter mu, by default 0. These is the meaning of the parameters in the first parameterization pm=1 which is the default parameterization selection. In the second parameterization, pm=2 alpha and beta take the meaning of the shape parameters (usually named) zeta and rho. In the third parameterization, pm=3 alpha and beta take the meaning of the shape parameters (usually named) xi and chi. In the fourth parameterization, pm=4 alpha and beta take the meaning of the shape parameters (usually named) a.bar and b.bar.

Value

returns the mode for the generalized hyperbolic distribution. A numeric value.
