Lcomoment.coefficients: L-comoment Coefficient Matrix

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

Description

Compute the L-comoment coefficients from an L-comoment matrix of order k ≥ 2 and the k = 2 (2nd order) L-comoment matrix. However, if the first argument is 1st-order then the coefficients of L-covariation are computed. The function requires that each matrix has already been computed by the function Lcomoment.matrix.

Usage

Arguments

Lk

A k ≥ 2 L-comoment matrix from Lcomoment.matrix.

L2

A k = 2 L-comoment matrix from Lcomoment.matrix(Dataframe,k=2).

Details

The coefficient of L-variation is computed by Lcomoment.coefficients(L1,L2) where L1 is a 1st-order L-moment matrix and L2 is a k = 2 L-comoment matrix. Symbolically, the coefficient of L-covariation is

\hat{τ}_{[12]} = \frac{\hat{λ}_{2[12]}} {\hat{λ}_{1[12]}} \mbox{.}

The higher L-comoment coefficients (L-coskew, L-cokurtosis, ...) are computed by the function Lcomoment.coefficients(L3,L2) (k=3), Lcomoment.coefficients(L4,L2) (k=4), and so on. Symbolically, the higher L-comoment coefficients for k ≥ 3 are

\hat{τ}_{k[12]} = \frac{\hat{λ}_{k[12]}} {\hat{λ}_{2[12]}}\mbox{.}

Finally, the usual univariate L-moment ratios as seen from lmom.ub or lmoms are along the diagonal. The Lcomoment.coefficients function does not make use of lmom.ub or lmoms.

Value

An R list is returned.

type

The type of L-comoment representation in the matrix: “Lcomoment.coefficients”.

order

The order of the coefficients. order=2 L-covariation, order=3 L-coskew, ...

matrix

A k ≥ 2 L-comoment coefficient matrix.

Note

The function begins with a capital letter. This is intentionally done so that lower case namespace is preserved. By using a capital letter now, then lcomoment.coefficients remains an available name in future releases.
