dnig(x, alpha = 1, beta = 0, delta = 1, mu = 0, log = FALSE)
pnig(q, alpha = 1, beta = 0, delta = 1, mu = 0)
qnig(p, alpha = 1, beta = 0, delta = 1, mu = 0)
rnig(n, alpha = 1, beta = 0, delta = 1, mu = 0)

Arguments

alpha, beta, delta, mu

shape parameter alpha; skewness parameter beta, abs(beta) is in the range (0, alpha); scale parameter delta, delta must be zero or positive; location parameter mu, by default 0. These are the parameters in the first parameterization.

log

a logical flag by default FALSE. Should labels and a main title drawn to the plot?

n

number of observations.

p

a numeric vector of probabilities.

x, q

a numeric vector of quantiles.

Details

The random deviates are calculated with the method described by Raible (2000).

Value

All values for the *nig functions are numeric vectors: d* returns the density, p* returns the distribution function, q* returns the quantile function, and r* generates random deviates.

All values have attributes named "param" listing the values of the distributional parameters.
