Moments and Moment Generating Function of the Exponential Distribution

Description

Raw moments, limited moments and moment generating function for the exponential distribution with rate rate (i.e., mean 1/rate).

Usage

mexp(order, rate = 1)
levexp(limit, rate = 1, order = 1)
mgfexp(t, rate = 1, log = FALSE)

Arguments

order

order of the moment.

limit

limit of the loss variable.

rate

vector of rates.

t

numeric vector.

log

logical; if TRUE, the cumulant generating function is returned.

Details

The kth raw moment of the random variable X is E[X^k], the kth limited moment at some limit d is E[min(X, d)^k] and the moment generating function is E[e^{tX}], k > -1.

Value

mexp gives the kth raw moment, levexp gives the kth moment of the limited loss variable, and mgfexp gives the moment generating function in t.

Invalid arguments will result in return value NaN, with a warning.
