qloglin: Quantile Function In a Simple Log-Linear model

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s)

Description

Suppose the random variable X has density function

g_θ(x) = (θ exp(θ x))/(exp(θ) - 1)

for an arbitrary real number θ and x \in [0,1]. The function qloglin is simply the quantile function

G^{-1}_θ(u) = θ^{-1} log (1 + (e^θ - 1)u)

in this model, for u \in [0,1]. This quantile function is used for the computation of quantiles of \widehat F_m in quantilesLogConDens.

Usage

1
qloglin(u, t)

Arguments

u

Vector in [0,1]^d where quantiles are to be computed at.

t

Parameter θ.

Value

z

Vector containing the quantiles G_n^{-1}(u_i) for i = 1, …, d.

Note

Taylor approximation is used if θ is small.

This function is not intended to be called by the end user.
