Discrete Weibull Distributions (Type 1 and 3)


Probability mass function, distribution function, quantile function, random generation and parameter estimation for the type I and III discrete Weibull distributions. In the present version, some modifications have been made on the functions in Edweibull for the computation of the moments of the type I discrete Weibull distribution.
