hypFit(x, alpha = 1, beta = 0, delta = 1, mu = 0, 
    scale = TRUE, doplot = TRUE, span = "auto", trace = TRUE, 
    title = NULL, description = NULL, ...) 

Arguments

alpha, beta, delta, mu

alpha is a shape parameter by default 1, beta is a skewness parameter by default 0, note abs(beta) is in the range (0, alpha), delta is a scale parameter by default 1, note, delta must be zero or positive, and mu is a location parameter, 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.

description

a character string which allows for a brief description.

doplot

a logical flag. Should a plot be displayed?

scale

a logical flag, by default TRUE. Should the time series be scaled by its standard deviation to achieve a more stable optimization?

span

x-coordinates for the plot, by default 100 values automatically selected and ranging between the 0.001, and 0.999 quantiles. Alternatively, you can specify the range by an expression like span=seq(min, max, times = n), where, min and max are the left and right endpoints of the range, and n gives the number of the intermediate points.

title

a character string which allows for a project title.

trace

a logical flag. Should the parameter estimation process be traced?

x

a numeric vector.

...

parameters to be parsed.

Details

The function nlm is used to minimize the "negative" maximum log-likelihood function. nlm carries out a minimization using a Newton-type algorithm.

Value

The functions tFit, hypFit and nigFit return a list with the following components:

estimate

the point at which the maximum value of the log liklihood function is obtained.

minimum

the value of the estimated maximum, i.e. the value of the log liklihood function.

code

an integer indicating why the optimization process terminated.
1: relative gradient is close to zero, current iterate is probably solution;
2: successive iterates within tolerance, current iterate is probably solution;
3: last global step failed to locate a point lower than estimate. Either estimate is an approximate local minimum of the function or steptol is too small;
4: iteration limit exceeded;
5: maximum step size stepmax exceeded five consecutive times. Either the function is unbounded below, becomes asymptotic to a finite value from above in some direction or stepmax is too small.

gradient

the gradient at the estimated maximum.

steps

number of function calls.
