Discrete Weibull (Type 3) {DiscreteWeibull} R Documentation

## The type 3 discrete Weibull distribution

### Description

Probability mass function, distribution function, quantile function, random generation, and hazard function for the type 3 discrete Weibull distribution with parameters c and \beta

### Usage

ddweibull3(x, c, beta)
pdweibull3(x, c, beta)
qdweibull3(p, c, beta)
rdweibull3(n, c, beta)
hdweibull3(x, c, beta)


### Arguments

 x vector of values/quantiles p vector of probabilities c first parameter beta second parameter n sample size

### Details

The type 3 discrete Weibull distribution is characterized by the following cumulative distribution function: F(x;c,\beta)=1-\exp(-c\sum_{j=0}^{x+1}j^{\beta}), for x=0,1,2,\dots, with c>0 and \beta>=-1.

### Value

ddweibull3 gives the probability function, pdweibull3 gives the distribution function, qdweibull3 gives the quantile function, hdweibull3 gives the hazard function, and rdweibull generates random values.
