Inverse Gaussian Distribution

Density, cumulative probability, quantiles and random generation for the inverse Gaussian distribution.

Usage
dinvgauss(x, mu, lambda=1)
pinvgauss(q, mu, lambda=1)
qinvgauss(p, mu, lambda=1)
rinvgauss(n, mu, lambda=1)
Arguments
x
vector of quantiles. Missing values (NAs) are allowed.
q
vector of quantiles. Missing values (NAs) are allowed.
p
vector of probabilities. Missing values (NAs) are allowed.
n
sample size. If length(n) is larger than 1, then length(n) random values are returned.
mu
vector of (positive) means. This is replicated to be the same length as p or q or the number of deviates generated.
lambda
vector of (positive) precision parameters. This is replicated to be the same length as p or q or the number of deviates generated.
Details

The inverse Gaussian distribution takes values on the positive real line. The variance of the distribution is $^3/$. Applications of the inverse Gaussian include sequential analysis, diffusion processes and radiotechniques. The inverse Gaussian is one of the response distributions used in generalized linear models.

Value

  • Vector of same length as x or q giving the density (dinvgauss), probability (pinvgauss), quantile (qinvgauss) or random sample (rinvgauss) for the inverse Gaussian distribution with mean mu and inverse dispersion lambda. Elements of q or p that are missing will cause the corresponding elements of the result to be missing.
