pdfwak: Probability Density Function of the Wakeby Distribution

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

Description

This function computes the probability density of the Wakeby distribution given parameters (ξ, α, β, γ, and δ) computed by parwak. The probability density function is

f(x) = (α[1-F(x)]^{β - 1} + γ[1-F(x)]^{-δ - 1})^{-1}\mbox{,}

where f(x) is the probability density for quantile x, F(x) is the cumulative distribution function or nonexceedance probability at x, ξ is a location parameter, α and β are scale parameters, and γ, and δ are shape parameters. The five returned parameters from parwak in order are ξ, α, β, γ, and δ.

Usage

1
pdfwak(x, para)

Arguments

x

A real value vector.

para

The parameters from parwak or vec2par.

Value

Probability density (f) for x.
