qq.exp.ext: Quantile versus quantile (QQ) plot for the Exponential Extension(EE) distribution

Description

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

Usage

1
qq.exp.ext(x, alpha.est, lambda.est, main = " ", line.qt = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

vector of observations

alpha.est

estimate of the parameter alpha

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.exp.ext() carries out a QQ plot for the Exponetial Extension.
