dGEVxGEV(x, param1, param2)

pGEVxGEV(q, param1, param2)

qGEVxGEV(p, param1, param2)

rGEVxGEV(n, param1, param2)

Arguments

x

vector of quantiles.

param1

three-dimensional vector (loc, scale, shape)' of a GEV from season 1.

param2

three-dimensional vector (loc, scale, shape)' of a GEV from season 2.

q

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

n

number of observations.

Details

These functions use the parametrization of the gev-functions from the package 'evd'. The distribution F of a two-component GEV is: F=F_1 * F_2, where F_1 and F_2 are two distribution functions of a GEV.
