Fréchet coefficients after power-law transformation


Coefficients of a power-law transformed Fréchet distribution


frechet_plt(shape = 1.5, scale = 0.5, a = 1, b = 1, inv = FALSE)


shape, scale

Scale and shape of the Fréchet distribution, defaults to 1.5 and 0.5 respectively.

a, b

constant and power of power-law transformation, defaults to 1 and 1 respectively.


logical indicating whether coefficients of the outcome variable of the power-law transformation should be returned (FALSE) or whether coefficients of the input variable being power-law transformed should be returned (TRUE). Defaults to FALSE.


If the random variable x is Fréchet distributed with scale shape and shape scale, then the power-law transformed variable

y = ax^b

is Fréchet distributed with scale ≤ft( \frac{scale}{a}\right)^{\frac{1}{b}} and shape b*k.


Returns a named list containing


Named vector of coefficients
