heavy.family {heavy}

Family objects for heavy-tailed distributions
Package: 
heavy
Version: 
0.2-3

Description

Provide a convenient way to specify the details of the models used by functions heavyLm, heavyLme and heavyPS.

Usage

normal()
Cauchy()
Student(df = 4)
slash(df = 2)
contaminated(epsilon = 0.05, vif = 0.25)

Arguments

df
degrees of freedom for Student-t and slash distributions.
epsilon, vif
percentage of outliers contamination and variance inflation factor.

Details

heavy.family is a generic function to create info about some heavy-tailed distributions which is passed to the estimation algorithm.

Examples

CauchyFmly <- Student(df = 1)
CauchyFmly
