Inverse Pareto coefficients after power-law transformation


Coefficients of a power-law transformed Inverse Pareto distribution


invpareto_plt(xmax = 5, k = 1.5, a = 1, b = 1, inv = FALSE)


xmax, k

Scale and shape of the Inverse Pareto distribution, defaults to 5 and 1.5 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 Inverse Pareto-distributed with scale xmin and shape k, then the power-law transformed variable

y = ax^b

is Inverse Pareto distributed with scale ( \frac{xmin}{a})^{\frac{1}{b}} and shape b*k.


Returns a named list containing


Named vector of coefficients
