quakur: Quantile Function of the Kumaraswamy Distribution

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

Description

This function computes the quantiles 0 < x < 1 of the Kumaraswamy distribution given parameters (α and β) computed by parkur. The quantile function is

x(F) = (1 - (1-F)^{1/β})^{1/α} \mbox{,}

where x(F) is the quantile for nonexceedance probability F, α is a shape parameter, and β is a shape parameter.

Usage

1
quakur(f, para, paracheck=TRUE)

Arguments

f

Nonexceedance probability (0 ≤ F ≤ 1).

para

The parameters from parkur 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.
