Laplace Distribution


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.


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)


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.
