Pareto: Pareto Distribution

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

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

The Pareto distribution has density

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

where m is the mean parameter of the distribution and s is the dispersion.

This distribution can be obtained as a mixture distribution from the exponential distribution using a gamma mixing distribution.
