The Inverse Pareto Distribution

Description

Density function, distribution function, quantile function, random generation raw moments and limited moments for the Inverse Pareto distribution with parameters shape and scale.

Usage

dinvpareto(x, shape, scale, log = FALSE)
pinvpareto(q, shape, scale, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qinvpareto(p, shape, scale, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
rinvpareto(n, shape, scale)
minvpareto(order, shape, scale)
levinvpareto(limit, shape, scale, order = 1)

Arguments

x, q

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

n

number of observations. If length(n) > 1, the length is taken to be the number required.

shape, scale

parameters. Must be strictly positive.

log, log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities/densities p are returned as log(p).

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are P[X <= x], otherwise, P[X > x].

order

order of the moment.

limit

limit of the loss variable.

Details

The inverse Pareto distribution with parameters shape = a and scale = s has density:

f(x) = a s x^(a - 1)/(x + s)^(a + 1)

for x > 0, a > 0 and s > 0.

The kth raw moment of the random variable X is E[X^k], -shape < k < 1.

The kth limited moment at some limit d is E[min(X, d)^k], k > -shape.

Value

dinvpareto gives the density, pinvpareto gives the distribution function, qinvpareto gives the quantile function, rinvpareto generates random deviates, minvpareto gives the kth raw moment, and levinvpareto calculates the kth limited moment.

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

Note

Evaluation of levinvpareto is done using numerical integration.

The "distributions" package vignette provides the interrelations between the continuous size distributions in actuar and the complete formulas underlying the above functions.
