The Frechet Distribution

Description

Density function, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the Frechet distribution with location, scale and shape parameters.

Usage

dfrechet(x, loc=0, scale=1, shape=1, log = FALSE) 
pfrechet(q, loc=0, scale=1, shape=1, lower.tail = TRUE) 
qfrechet(p, loc=0, scale=1, shape=1, lower.tail = TRUE)
rfrechet(n, loc=0, scale=1, shape=1)

Arguments

x, q Vector of quantiles.
p Vector of probabilities.
n Number of observations.
loc, scale, shape Location, scale and shape parameters (can be given as vectors).
log Logical; if TRUE, the log density is returned.
lower.tail Logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x], otherwise, P[X > x]

Details

The Frechet distribution function with parameters loc = a, scale = b and shape = s is

G(x) = exp{-[(z-a)/b]^(-s)}

for z > a and zero otherwise, where b > 0 and s > 0.

Value

dfrechet gives the density function, pfrechet gives the distribution function, qfrechet gives the quantile function, and rfrechet generates random deviates.
