Probability versus Probability (PP) plot for the Gumbel distribution

Share:

Description

The function pp.gumbel() produces a PP plot for the Gumbel based on their MLE or any other estimate. Also, a reference line can be sketched.

Usage

1
pp.gumbel(x, mu.est, sigma.est, main = " ", line = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

vector of observations

mu.est

estimate of the parameter mu

sigma.est

estimate of the parameter sigma

main

the title for the plot.

line

logical; if TRUE, a 45 degree line is sketched.

...

additional arguments to be passed to the underlying plot function.

Value

The function pp.gumbel() carries out a PP plot for the Gumbel.
