Liouville_marginal: Liouville vectors marginal functions

Liouville_marginalR Documentation

Liouville vectors marginal functions


Marginal density, distribution, survival and inverse survival functions for Liouville copulas or Liouville vectors. The inverse survival function of Liouville vectors is not available in closed-form and is obtained numerically by root-finding. As such, Monte-Carlo approximation have been considered for dealing with inference to avoid computational bottlenecks. Note: the arguments of sliouv are reversed since they are meant to be called inside optim. The functions borrow psi functions and their derivatives from the copula-package.


sliouvm(x, family, alpha, theta)

pliouvm(x, family, alpha, theta)

isliouvm(u, family, alpha, theta)

dliouvm(x, family, alpha, theta)



vector of quantiles from a Liouville copula (or a Liouville vector for the survival function , with support on the positive real line)


family of the Liouville copula. Either "clayton", "gumbel", "frank", "AMH" or "joe"


integer Dirichlet parameter


parameter of the corresponding Archimedean copula


vector of quantiles or survival probabilities, (pseudo)-uniform variates


a vector with the corresponding quantile, probability, survival probabilities
