Gumbel distribution

The Gumbel cumulative distribution function with location parameter loc $= \mu$ and scale parameter scale $= \sigma$ is $$F(x) = \exp(-\exp[-(x-\mu)/\sigma])$$ for all real x, where $\sigma > 0$; c.f. rgumbel. This distribution is also known as extreme value distribution of type I; confer Chapter~22 of Johnson et al. (1995).

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("Gumbel", loc, scale). More frequently they are created via the generating function Gumbel.
