LogNormal {distributions3} R Documentation

## Create a LogNormal distribution

### Description

A random variable created by exponentiating a Normal() distribution. Taking the log of LogNormal data returns in Normal() data.

### Usage

LogNormal(log_mu = 0, log_sigma = 1)


### Arguments

 log_mu The location parameter, written \mu in textbooks. Can be any real number. Defaults to 0. log_sigma The scale parameter, written \sigma in textbooks. Can be any positive real number. Defaults to 1.

### Details

We recommend reading this documentation on https://alexpghayes.github.io/distributions3/, where the math will render with additional detail and much greater clarity.

In the following, let X be a LogNormal random variable with success probability p = p.

Support: R^+

Mean: \exp(\mu + \sigma^2/2)

Variance: [\exp(\sigma^2)-1]\exp(2\mu+\sigma^2)

Probability density function (p.d.f):

 f(x) = \frac{1}{x \sigma \sqrt{2 \pi}} \exp \left(-\frac{(\log x - \mu)^2}{2 \sigma^2} \right) 

Cumulative distribution function (c.d.f):

F(x) = \frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{2\sqrt{pi}}\int_{-x}^x e^{-t^2} dt

Moment generating function (m.g.f): Undefined.

### Value

A LogNormal object.

Other continuous distributions: Beta(), Cauchy(), ChiSquare(), Erlang(), Exponential(), FisherF(), Frechet(), GEV(), GP(), Gamma(), Gumbel(), Logistic(), Normal(), RevWeibull(), StudentsT(), Tukey(), Uniform(), Weibull()
