Quantile Function of the Rayleigh Distribution

Share:

Description

This function computes the quantiles of the Rayleigh distribution given parameters (ξ and α) computed by parray. The quantile function is

x(F) = ξ + √{-2α^2\log(1-F)} \mbox{,}

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

Usage

1
quaray(f, para, paracheck=TRUE)

Arguments

f

Nonexceedance probability (0 ≤ F ≤ 1).

para

The parameters from parray 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.
