simu.Gumbel {Copula.surv}R Documentation

Simulating data from the Gumbel copula

Description

n pairs of (U,V) are generated from the Gumbel copula. n paris of (X,Y) are generated from the corresponding bivariate survival model with the Weibull marginal distributions. The default parameters (scale1=scale2=shape1=shape2=1) give the unit exponential distributions.

Usage

simu.Gumbel(n,alpha,scale1=1,scale2=1,shape1=1,shape2=1)

Arguments

n

sample size

alpha

association parameter

scale1

scale parameter for X

scale2

scale parameter for Y

shape1

shape parameter for X

shape2

shape parameter for Y

Details

See Section 2.6 of Emura et al.(2019) for copulas and bivariate survival times.

Value

U

uniformly distributed on (0,1)

V

uniformly distributed on (0,1)

X

Weibull distributed (scale1, shape1)

Y

Weibull distributed (scale2, shape2)
