Quantile versus quantile (QQ) plot for the Chen distribution

Description

The function qq.chen() produces a QQ plot for the Chen based on their MLE or any other estimator. Also, a line going through the first and the third quartile can be sketched.

Usage

1
qq.chen(x, beta.est, lambda.est, main = " ", line.qt = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

vector of observations

beta.est

estimate of the parameter beta

lambda.est

estimate of the parameter lambda

main

the title for the plot

line.qt

logical; if TRUE, a line going by the first and third quartile is sketched.

...

additional arguments to be passed to the underlying plot function.

Value

The function qq.chen() carries out a QQ plot for the Chen
