Density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the Truncated Generalised Gamma Distribution in log base 10 (log10) space. Specifically, if 10^x is drawn from a TGGD distribution (in real space), these functions give the distribution of x, using the same parameter values.

`x,q` |
Vector of quantiles. |

`p` |
Vector of probabilities. |

`n` |
Number of observations. If length(n) > 1, the length is taken to be the number required. |

`scale` |
Vector of values for scale, which controls the transition regime between the power law slope and the exponential cut-off of the TGGD. This is analogous to the scale parameter for the standard Gamma distribution (see |

`a` |
Vector of values for a, which controls the power law slope of the TGGD. |

`b` |
Vector of values for b, which controls the exponential cutoff of the TGGD. |

`xmin` |
Vector of values for xmin, which controls the lower limit at which to trancate the TGGD. |

`res.approx` |
The resolution used to create the inverted CDF required to map probability integrals back onto quantiles. |

`log, log.p` |
Logical; if TRUE, probabilities/densities p are returned as log(p). |

`lower.tail` |
Logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x], otherwise, P[X > x]. |

This distribution function is described in detail in Murray, Robotham and Power 2016. The PDF is given by:

*f(x;a,b,s,m) = (ln(10).b.(10^(x-scale))^(a+1).exp(-10^(b(x-s))))/gamma_inc((a+1)/b,(10^(m-s))^b)*

where, from the argument list above, we use x=x, a=a, b=b, s=scale and m=xmin. *gamma_inc* is the upper incomplete Gamma function as defined by the gsl `gamma_inc`

function, using the same argument ordering, where `gamma_inc(a,x)==pgamma(x,a,lower=FALSE)*gamma(x)`

for a>0. `gamma_inc`

is used because it allows for the computation of upper incomplete integrals in cases where a<=0.

dtggd_log gives the density, ptggd_log gives the distribution function, qtggd_log gives the quantile function, and rtggd_log generates random deviates.

Invalid arguments will result in return value NaN, with a warning.

The length of the result is determined by n for rtggd_log, and is the maximum of the lengths of the numerical arguments for the other functions.

The numerical arguments other than n are recycled to the length of the result. Only the first elements of the logical arguments are used.

The intended application of the log-space version of the TGGD is to provide the correct distribution when variates are drawn from a real-space TGGD, but there are priors on their uncertainty which operate in logspace (eg. a lognormal distribution). The likelihood of a given set of parameters is incorrect in such a case if the real-space version is used without an adjustment to the Jacobian.

r <- rtggd_log(100,a=-2)
hist(r)
##Ideally the output below should equal 0, in practice it will be very close:
qtggd_log(ptggd_log(r))-r
#These should be the same:
integrate(dtggd_log,lower=10,upper=11,a=-1.5,b=0.7,xmin=10)
ptggd_log(11,a=-1.5,b=0.7,xmin=10)
#This should be very close to 1 (for a true PDF):
ptggd_log(18,a=-1.5,b=0.7,xmin=10)
#To show the link to the linear and ln variants (and the slight inaccuracies) these
#outputs should be a sequence from 0 to 1 (by=0.1):
ptggd_ln(log(qtggd(seq(0,1,by=0.1))))
ptggd_ln(qtggd_log(seq(0,1,by=0.1))*log(10))
