SN2: Skew Normal Type 2 distribution for fitting a GAMLSS

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/SN2.R

Description

The function SN2() defines the Skew Normal Type 2 distribution, a three parameter distribution, for a gamlss.family object to be used in GAMLSS fitting using the function gamlss(), with parameters mu, sigma and nu. The functions dSN2, pSN2, qSN2 and rSN2 define the density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the SN2 parameterization of the Skew Normal Type 2 distribution.

SN2(mu.link = "identity", sigma.link = "log", nu.link = "log")
dSN2(x, mu = 0, sigma = 1, nu = 2, log = FALSE)
pSN2(q, mu = 0, sigma = 1, nu = 2, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qSN2(p, mu = 0, sigma = 1, nu = 2, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
rSN2(n, mu = 0, sigma = 1, nu = 2)

Arguments

mu.link

Defines the mu.link, with "‘identity"’ links the default for the mu parameter

sigma.link

Defines the sigma.link, with "‘log"’ as the default for the sigma parameter

nu.link

Defines the nu.link, with "‘log"’ as the default for the sigma parameter

x, q

vector of quantiles

mu

vector of location parameter values

sigma

vector of scale parameter values

nu

vector of scale parameter values

log, log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p)

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x], otherwise P[X > x]

p

vector of probabilities

n

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

Details

The parameterization of the Skew Normal Type 2 distribution in the function SN2 is ...

Value

returns a gamlss.family object which can be used to fit a Skew Normal Type 2 distribution in the gamlss() function.

Note

This is a special case of the Skew Exponential Power type 3 distribution (SEP3)where tau=2.
