Power Exponential Distribution


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

The power exponential distribution has density

f(y) = exp(-(abs(y-m)/sqrt(s))^(2 f)/2)/ (sqrt(s) Gamma(1+1/(2 f)) 2^(1+1/(2 f)))

where m is the mean of the distribution, s is the dispersion, and f is the family parameter. f=1 yields a normal distribution, f=0.5 a Laplace distribution, and f=Inf a uniform distribution.
