EXP: Exponential distribution for fitting a GAMLSS

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

The function EXP defines the exponential distribution, a one parameter distribution for a gamlss.family object to be used in GAMLSS fitting using the function gamlss(). The mu parameter represents the mean of the distribution. The functions dEXP, pEXP, qEXP and rEXP define the density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the specific parameterization of the exponential distribution defined by function EXP.

EXP(mu.link ="log")
dEXP(x, mu = 1, log = FALSE)
pEXP(q, mu = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qEXP(p, mu = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
rEXP(n, mu = 1)

Arguments

mu.link

Defines the mu.link, with "log" link as the default for the mu parameter, other links are "inverse" and "identity"

x,q

vector of quantiles

mu

vector of location parameter values

log, log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x], otherwise, P[X > x]

p

vector of probabilities

n

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

Details

The specific parameterization of the exponential distribution used in EXP is

f(y|mu)=1/mu*exp(-y/mu)

, for y>0, mu>0.

Value

EXP() returns a gamlss.family object which can be used to fit an exponential distribution in the gamlss() function. dEXP() gives the density, pEXP() gives the distribution function, qEXP() gives the quantile function, and rEXP() generates random deviates.
