Parameter Sets for the Skew Hyperbolic t-Distribution

Share:

Description

These objects store different parameter sets of the skew hyperbolic t distribution for testing or demonstrating purpose as matrices.

Specifically, the parameter sets skewhypSmallShape and skewhypLargeShape have constant location parameter of mu = 0 and scale parameter of delta = 1.

The skewness parameter beta takes values from {0,2} in skewhypSmallShape and skewhypSmallParam, and from {-5,0,1,2,5} in skewhypLargeShape and skewhypLargeParam.

The shape parameter nu takes values from {1,5} in skewhypSmallShape and skewhypSmallParam, and from {1,2,5,10,20} in skewhypLargeShape and skewhypLargeParam.
