Description

Calculates the estimate of the threshold parameter.

Usage

1
weibull.threshold(x, a, interval.threshold, extendInt="downX")

Arguments

x

a numeric vector of observations.

a

the offset fraction to be used; typically in (0,1).

interval.threshold

a vector containing the end-points of the interval to be estimated for the threshold parameter.

extendInt

character string specifying if the interval c(left,right) should be extended or directly produce an error when f() has no differing signs at the endpoints. The default, "downX", keep lowering the the left end of the interval so that f() has different signs. See uniroot.

Details

The three-parameter Weibull distribution has the cumulative distribution function

F(x) = 1 -\exp\Big[-\Big( \frac{x-θ}{β}\Big)^{α}\Big],

where x>θ. The threshold parameter (θ) is estimated by maximizing the correlation function from the Weibull plot.

The choice of a follows ppoints function.

If interval.threshold is missing, the interval is initially given by (min(x)-sd(x), min(x)). If this interval does not include the estimate, its lower bound is extended (see also uniroot).

Value

weibull.threshold returns a numeric value.
