Function to calculate the mode of a unimodal distribution which is specified by the root of the density function name and the corresponding parameters.
Character. The name of the density function for which the mode is required.
Numeric. A vector giving the parameter values for the
distribution specified by
Passes arguments to
The name of the unimodal density function must be supplied as the
characters of the root for that density (e.g.
ghyp). The particular unimodal distribution being considered is
specified by the value of the argument
param, or for base R
distributions by specification in the ... arguments.
The mode is found by a numerical optimization using
