Density, distribution function, quantile function and random
generation for the logistic distribution with parameters
`location`

and `scale`

.

```
dlogis(x, location = 0, scale = 1, log = FALSE)
plogis(q, location = 0, scale = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
qlogis(p, location = 0, scale = 1, lower.tail = TRUE, log.p = FALSE)
rlogis(n, location = 0, scale = 1)
```

x, q

vector of quantiles.

p

vector of probabilities.

n

number of observations. If `length(n) > 1`

, the length
is taken to be the number required.

location, scale

location and scale parameters.

log, log.p

logical; if TRUE, probabilities p are given as log(p).

lower.tail

logical; if TRUE (default), probabilities are \(P[X \le x]\), otherwise, \(P[X > x]\).

`dlogis`

gives the density,
`plogis`

gives the distribution function,
`qlogis`

gives the quantile function, and
`rlogis`

generates random deviates.

The length of the result is determined by `n`

for
`rlogis`

, and is the maximum of the lengths of the
numerical arguments for the other functions.

The numerical arguments other than `n`

are recycled to the
length of the result. Only the first elements of the logical
arguments are used.

If `location`

or `scale`

are omitted, they assume the
default values of `0`

and `1`

respectively.

The Logistic distribution with `location`

\(= \mu\) and
`scale`

\(= \sigma\) has distribution function
$$
F(x) = \frac{1}{1 + e^{-(x-\mu)/\sigma}}%
$$ and density
$$
f(x)= \frac{1}{\sigma}\frac{e^{(x-\mu)/\sigma}}{(1 + e^{(x-\mu)/\sigma})^2}%
$$

It is a long-tailed distribution with mean \(\mu\) and variance \(\pi^2/3 \sigma^2\).
