L-moments of the Exponential Distribution

Description

This function estimates the L-moments of the Exponential distribution given the parameters (ξ and α) from parexp. The L-moments in terms of the parameters are λ_1 = ξ + α, λ_2 = α/2, τ_3 = 1/3, τ_4 = 1/6, and τ_5 = 1/10.

Usage

1
lmomexp(para)

Arguments

para

The parameters of the distribution.

Value

An R list is returned.

lambdas

Vector of the L-moments. First element is λ_1, second element is λ_2, and so on.

ratios

Vector of the L-moment ratios. Second element is τ, third element is τ_3 and so on.

trim

Level of symmetrical trimming used in the computation, which is 0.

leftrim

Level of left-tail trimming used in the computation, which is NULL.

rightrim

Level of right-tail trimming used in the computation, which is NULL.

source

An attribute identifying the computational source of the L-moments: “lmomexp”.
