Power Exponential Distribution

Description

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.

Usage

dpowexp(y, m=0, s=1, f=1, log=FALSE)
ppowexp(q, m=0, s=1, f=1)
qpowexp(p, m=0, s=1, f=1)
rpowexp(n, m=0, s=1, f=1)

Arguments

y vector of responses.
q vector of quantiles.
p vector of probabilities
n number of values to generate
m vector of means.
s vector of dispersion parameters.
f vector of family parameters.
log if TRUE, log probabilities are supplied.
