eta.s {asymmetry.measures}R Documentation

Strong asymmetry measure eta(X).

Description

Returns the strong asymmetry measure eta(X) of Patil, Bagkavos and Wood (2014).

Usage

 eta.s(xin, dist, GridLength, p1, p2)

Arguments

xin

A vector of data points - the available sample.

dist

Character string, specifies selected distribution function.

GridLength

A non-negative number, which will be rounded up if fractional.Desired length of the sequence.

p1

A scalar. Parameter 1 (vector or object) of the selected distribution.

p2

A scalar. Parameter 2 (vector or object) of the selected distribution.

Details

Implements

η(X)= -0.5 sign(ρ_1)\max|ρ_p + ρ_p^*|

with 1/2 ≤ p ≤ 1.

Uses maximum likehood estimates for the unknown functionals in the definition of the measure.

Value

Returns a scalar, the value of the strong asymmetry measure η(X).
