Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

View source: R/mlpareto.R

Description

The maximum likelihood estimate of b is the minimum of x and the maximum likelihood estimate of a is 1/(mean(log(x)) - log(b)).

Usage

1
mlpareto(x, na.rm = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

a (non-empty) numeric vector of data values.

na.rm

logical. Should missing values be removed?

...

currently affects nothing.

Details

For the density function of the Pareto distribution see Pareto.

density

The density associated with the estimates.

logLik

The loglikelihood at the maximum.

support

The support of the density.

n
