GIG: Generalized Inverse Gaussian distribution for fitting a...

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

Description

The function GIG defines the generalized inverse gaussian distribution, a three parameter distribution, for a gamlss.family object to be used in GAMLSS fitting using the function gamlss(). The functions DIG, pGIG, GIG and rGIG define the density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the specific parameterization of the generalized inverse gaussian distribution defined by function GIG.

GIG(mu.link = "log", sigma.link = "log", 
                       nu.link = "identity")
dGIG(x, mu=1, sigma=1, nu=1,  
                      log = FALSE)
pGIG(q, mu=1, sigma=1, nu=1,  lower.tail = TRUE, 
                     log.p = FALSE)
qGIG(p, mu=1, sigma=1, nu=1,  lower.tail = TRUE, 
                     log.p = FALSE)
rGIG(n, mu=1, sigma=1, nu=1, ...)

Arguments

mu.link

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

sigma.link

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

nu.link

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

x,q

vector of quantiles

mu

vector of location parameter values

sigma

vector of scale parameter values

nu

vector of shape 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

...

for extra arguments

Details

The specific parameterization of the generalized inverse gaussian distribution used in GIG is f(y|mu,sigma,nu)=((c/mu)^nu)*(y^(nu-1))/(2*besselK(1/sigma,nu))*exp(-1/(2*sigma)*(c*y/mu+mu/(c*y))) where c = besselK(1/sigma,nu+1)/besselK(1/sigma,nu), for y>0, mu>0, sigma>0 and -Inf>nu>Inf.

Value

GIG() returns a gamlss.family object which can be used to fit a generalized inverse gaussian distribution in the gamlss() function. DIG() gives the density, pGIG() gives the distribution function, GIG() gives the quantile function, and rGIG() generates random deviates.
