L-moments of the Wakeby Distribution

Share:

Description

This function estimates the L-moments of the Wakeby distribution given the parameters (ξ, α, β, γ, and δ) from parwak. The L-moments in terms of the parameters are complicated and solved numerically.

Usage

1
lmomwak(wakpara)

Arguments

wakpara

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: “lmomwak”.
