#' Density, cumulative density, quantiles and random number generation for the
#' generalized extreme value distribution
#' 
#' Random number generation is done as a transformation of the Gumbel
#' distribution; Gumbel random variates are generated as the negative logarithm
#' of standard exponentials.
#' 
#' @param x,q,p Value, quantile or probability respectively.
#' @param n Number of random numbers to simulate.
#' @param mu Location parameter.
#' @param sigma Scale parameter.
#' @param xi Shape parameter.
#' @param log.d,log.p Whether or not to work on the log scale.
#' @param lower.tail Whether to return the lower tail.
