Two-Sided Power Distribution


These functions provide information about the two-sided power distribution with location parameter equal to m and shape equal to s: density, cumulative distribution, quantiles, and random generation.

The two-sided power distribution has density

f(y) = s(y/m)^(s-1), y<=m

f(y) = s((1-y)/(1-m))^(s-1), y>=m

where m is the location parameter of the distribution and s is the shape, and 0<y<1.

For s=1, this is the uniform distribution and for s=2, it is the triangular distribution.

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 shape parameters.
log if TRUE, log probabilities are supplied.
