Density functions of multivariate Standard Skew Norm, t-Student and GED distributions

Description

Compute the density function of Standard Skew Normal distribution (SSNORM) or density function of Standard Skew t-Student distribution (SST) or density function of Standard Skew GED distribution (SSGED)

Usage

  dssnorm(x, gamma=rep(1,length(x)), log=FALSE)
  
  dsst(x, gamma=rep(1,length(x)), nu=10, log=FALSE)
  
  dssged(x, gamma=rep(1,length(x)), delta=2, log=FALSE)

Arguments

x

a numeric vector for the point which the density will be computed.

gamma

a numeric vector for skew parameters. Must be positive.

nu

a numeric value of shape parameter of the multivariate Standard Skew t-Student distribution. Must be greater than 2.

delta

a numeric value of shape parameter of GED distribution. Must be positive.

log

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

Value

Returns the computed value of the density.
