Generalized Weibull {rmutil}R Documentation

Generalized Weibull Distribution


These functions provide information about the generalized Weibull distribution, also called the exponentiated Weibull, with scale parameter equal to m, shape equal to s, and family parameter equal to f: density, cumulative distribution, quantiles, log hazard, and random generation.

The generalized Weibull distribution has density

f(y) = s f y^(s-1) (1-exp(-(y/m)^s))^(f-1) exp(-(y/m)^s)/m^s

where m is the scale parameter of the distribution, s is the shape, and f is the family parameter.

f=1 gives a Weibull distribution, for s=1, f<0 a generalized F distribution, and for s>0, f<=0 a Burr type XII distribution.
