## Laplace Distribution

### Description

These functions provide information about the Laplace distribution
with location parameter equal to `m`

and dispersion equal to
`s`

: density, cumulative distribution, quantiles, log hazard, and
random generation.

The Laplace distribution has density

*f(y) = exp(-abs(y-m)/s)/(2*s)*

where *m* is the location parameter of the distribution and
*s* is the dispersion.

### Usage

dlaplace(y, m=0, s=1, log=FALSE)
plaplace(q, m=0, s=1)
qlaplace(p, m=0, s=1)
hlaplace(y, m=0, s=1)
rlaplace(n, m=0, s=1)

### Arguments

`y` |
vector of responses. |

`q` |
vector of quantiles. |

`p` |
vector of probabilities |

`n` |
number of values to generate |

`m` |
vector of location parameters. |

`s` |
vector of dispersion parameters. |

`log` |
if TRUE, log probabilities are supplied. |
