Lower bound estimator for discrete powerlaw distributions

Description

Lower bound estimator for discrete powerlaw distributions based on the distances between probability mass functions.

Usage

1
getXmin2(o, g = 1, c = 90, k = 5, xmax = 1e+05)

Arguments

o

Discrete powerlaw object.

g

A guess on the true value of the lower bound.

c

Confidence on the guess. A value between 1 and 100. By default is set to 90.

k

Number of computations after a local minimum in the KS statistics is reached.

xmax

Max value considered in the estimation of the lower bound.
