Generalized Inverse Gaussian {rmutil}R Documentation

Generalized Inverse Gaussian Distribution


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

The generalized inverse Gaussian distribution has density

f(y) = y^(f-1)/(2 m^f K(1/(s m),abs(f))) exp(-(1/y+y/m^2)/(2*s))

where m is the mean of the distribution, s the dispersion, f is the family parameter, and K() is the fractional Bessel function of the third kind.

f=-1/2 yields an inverse Gaussian distribution, s=infinity, f>0 a gamma distribution, and f=0 a hyperbola distribution.
