Kendall's tau under the SNBP distribution

Description

Compute Kendall's tau under the Sankaran and Nair bivairate Pareto (SNBP) distribution (Sankaran and Nair, 1993) by numerical integration.

Usage

Kendall.SNBP(Alpha0, Alpha1, Alpha2, Gamma)

Arguments

Alpha0

Copula parameter α_{0} with restricted range.

Alpha1

Positive scale parameter α_{1} for the Pareto margin.

Alpha2

Positive scale parameter α_{2} for the Pareto margin.

Gamma

Common positive shape parameter γ for the Pareto margins.

Details

The admissible range of Alpha0 (α_{0}) is 0 ≤q α_{0} ≤q (γ+1) α_{1} α_{2}.

Value

tau

Kendall's tau.
