quakap: Quantile Function of the Kappa Distribution

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

Description

This function computes the quantiles of the Kappa distribution given parameters (ξ, α, κ, and h) computed by parkap. The quantile function is

x(F) = ξ + \frac{α}{κ}≤ft(1-{≤ft(\frac{1-F^h}{h}\right)}^κ\right) \mbox{,}

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

Usage

1
quakap(f, para, paracheck=TRUE)

Arguments

f

Nonexceedance probability (0 ≤ F ≤ 1).

para

The parameters from parkap or vec2par.

paracheck

A logical controlling whether the parameters are checked for validity. Overriding of this check might be extremely important and needed for use of the quantile function in the context of TL-moments with nonzero trimming.

Value

Quantile value for nonexceedance probability F.
