cdfgum: Cumulative Distribution Function of the Gumbel Distribution

Description

This function computes the cumulative probability or nonexceedance probability of the Gumbel distribution given parameters (ξ and α) computed by pargum. The cumulative distribution function is

F(x) = \mathrm{exp}(-\mathrm{exp}(Y)) \mbox{,}

where

Y = -\frac{x - ξ}{α} \mbox{,}

where F(x) is the nonexceedance probability for quantile x, ξ is a location parameter, and α is a scale parameter.

Usage

1
cdfgum(x, para)

Arguments

x

A real value vector.

para

The parameters from pargum or vec2par.

Value

Nonexceedance probability (F) for x.
