GU: The Gumbel distribution for fitting a GAMLSS

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

Description

The function GU defines the Gumbel distribution, a two parameter distribution, for a gamlss.family object to be used in GAMLSS fitting using the function gamlss(). The functions dGU, pGU, qGU and rGU define the density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the specific parameterization of the Gumbel distribution.

GU(mu.link = "identity", sigma.link = "log")
dGU(x, mu = 0, sigma = 1, log = FALSE)
pGU(q, mu = 0, sigma = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qGU(p, mu = 0, sigma = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
rGU(n, mu = 0, sigma = 1)

Arguments

mu.link

Defines the mu.link, with "identity" link as the default for the mu parameter. other available link is "inverse", "log" and "own")

sigma.link

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

x,q

vector of quantiles

mu

vector of location parameter values

sigma

vector of scale 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 Gumbel distribution used in GU is

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

for y=(-Inf,+Inf), μ=(-Inf,+Inf) and σ>0.

Value

GU() returns a gamlss.family object which can be used to fit a Gumbel distribution in the gamlss() function. dGU() gives the density, pGU() gives the distribution function, qGU() gives the quantile function, and rGU() generates random deviates.

Note

The mean of the distribution is mu-0.57722*sigma and the variance is (pi^2)*(sigma^2)/6.
