PowerExp: Power Exponential Distribution

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) Examples

Description

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

The power exponential distribution has density

f(y) = exp(-(abs(y-m)/sqrt(s))^(2 f)/2)/ (sqrt(s) Gamma(1+1/(2 f)) 2^(1+1/(2 f)))

where m is the mean of the distribution, s is the dispersion, and f is the family parameter. f=1 yields a normal distribution, f=0.5 a Laplace distribution, and f=Inf a uniform distribution.
