Calculate sample L-Moments

Description

Calculate sample L-Moments of a dataset

Usage

1
lmom.sample(data,max.mom=3)

Arguments

data

A vector containing a dataset

max.mom

The maximum order of L-Moment to estimate

Details

This function is a wrapper around the samlmu function from Hosking's lmom package, to give different argument defaults. It calculates sample L Moments.

Value

A vector of length max.mom. The first two elements are the first two L moments. If max.mom is greater than two, the following elements are the corresponding L moment ratios (the L Moment divided by the 2nd L Moment).
