# Gumbel distribution

### Description

The Gumbel cumulative distribution function with
location parameter `loc`

*= mu* and scale
parameter `scale`

*= sigma* is

*F(x) = exp(-exp[-(x-mu)/sigma])*

for all real x, where *sigma > 0*;
c.f. `rgumbel`

. This distribution is also known as
extreme value distribution of type I; confer Chapter~22 of
Johnson et al. (1995).

### Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form `new("Gumbel", loc, scale)`

.
More frequently they are created via the generating function
`Gumbel`

.

### Slots

`NULL`

`.withArith`

logical: used internally to issue warnings as to interpretation of arithmetics

`.withSim`

logical: used internally to issue warnings as to accuracy

`.logExact`

logical: used internally to flag the case where there are explicit formulae for the log version of density, cdf, and quantile function

`.lowerExact`

logical: used internally to flag the case where there are explicit formulae for the lower tail version of cdf and quantile function

`Symmetry`

object of class

`"DistributionSymmetry"`

; used internally to avoid unnecessary calculations.
