Generalized Extreme Value {rmutil}R Documentation

Generalized Extreme Value Distribution


These functions provide information about the generalized extreme value distribution with location parameter equal to m, dispersion equal to s, and family parameter equal to f: density, cumulative distribution, quantiles, log hazard, and random generation.

The generalized extreme value distribution has density

f(y) = y^(f-1) exp(y^f/f) (s/m) (exp(y^f/f)/m)^(s-1) exp(-(exp(y^f/f)/m)^s)/(1-I(f>0)+sign(f) exp(-m^-s))

where m is the location parameter of the distribution, s is the dispersion, f is the family parameter, I() is the indicator function, and y>0.

f=1 a truncated extreme value distribution.
