These functions provide the density, distribution function, quantile
function, and random generation for the univariate, skew discrete
Laplace distribution with parameters *p* and *q*.

Application: Discrete Univariate

Density 1:

*p(theta) = (1-p)(1-q) / (1-pq)p^theta, theta=0,1,2,3,...*Density 2:

*p(theta) = (1-p)(1-q) / (1-pq)q^(|theta|),; x=0,-1,-2,-3,...*Inventor: Kozubowski, T.J. and Inusah, S. (2006)

Notation 1:

*theta ~ DL(p, q)*Notation 2:

*p(theta) = DL(theta | p, q)*Parameter 1:

*p in [0,1]*Parameter 2:

*q in [0,1]*Mean 1:

*E(theta) = (1 / (1-p)) - (1 / (1-q)) = (p / (1-p)) - (q / (1-q))*Mean 2:

*E(|theta|) = (q(1-p)^2+p(1-q)^2) / ((1-qp)(1-q)(1-p))*Variance:

*var(theta) = (1 / ((1-p)^2(1-q)^2))[(q(1-p)^3(1+q)+p(1-q)^3(1+p)) / (1-pq) - (p-q)^2]*Mode:

This is a discrete form of the skew-Laplace distribution. The symmetric
discrete Laplace distribution occurs when *p=q*. DL(p,0) is a
geometric distribution, and DL(0,q) is a geometric distribution of
non-positive integers. The distribution is degenerate when
DL(0,0). Since the geometric distribution is a discrete analog of the
exponential distribution, the distribution of the difference of two
geometric variables is a discrete Laplace distribution.

These functions are similar to those in the `DiscreteLaplace`

package.

`dslaplace`

gives the density,
`pslaplace`

gives the distribution function,
`qslaplace`

gives the quantile function, and
`rslaplace`

generates random deviates.
