Levy Distribution


These functions provide information about the Levy distribution with location parameter equal to m and dispersion equal to s: density, cumulative distribution, quantiles, and random generation.

The Levy distribution has density

f(y) = sqrt(s/(2 pi (y-m)^3)) exp(-s/(2 (y-m)))

where m is the location parameter of the distribution and s is the dispersion, and y>m.


dlevy(y, m=0, s=1, log=FALSE)
plevy(q, m=0, s=1)
qlevy(p, m=0, s=1)
rlevy(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.
