biamhcop: Ali-Mikhail-Haq Distribution Family Function

Description

Estimate the association parameter of Ali-Mikhail-Haq's bivariate distribution by maximum likelihood estimation.

Usage

biamhcop(lapar = "rhobitlink", iapar = NULL, imethod = 1, nsimEIM = 250)

Arguments

lapar

Link function applied to the association parameter \(\alpha\), which is real and \(-1 < \alpha < 1\). See Links for more choices.

iapar

Numeric. Optional initial value for \(\alpha\). By default, an initial value is chosen internally. If a convergence failure occurs try assigning a different value. Assigning a value will override the argument imethod.

imethod

An integer with value 1 or 2 which specifies the initialization method. If failure to converge occurs try the other value, or else specify a value for iapar.

nsimEIM

See CommonVGAMffArguments for more information.

Value

An object of class "vglmff" (see vglmff-class). The object is used by modelling functions such as vglm and vgam.

Details

The cumulative distribution function is $$P(Y_1 \leq y_1, Y_2 \leq y_2) = y_1 y_2 / ( 1 - \alpha (1 - y_1) (1 - y_2) ) $$ for \(-1 < \alpha < 1\). The support of the function is the unit square. The marginal distributions are the standard uniform distributions. When \(\alpha = 0\) the random variables are independent. This is an Archimedean copula.
