Burr: Burr Distribution

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) Examples

Description

These functions provide information about the Burr distribution with location parameter equal to m, dispersion equal to s, and family parameter equal to f: density, cumulative distribution, quantiles, log hazard, and random generation.

The Burr distribution has density

f(y) = f s (y/m)^(s-1)/(m (1+(y/m)^s)^(f+1))

where m is the location parameter of the distribution, s is the dispersion, and f is the family parameter.
