WakebyDistribution

WakebyDistribution
represents Wakeby distribution with shape parameters and , scale parameters and , and location parameter .
  • The quantile function for value in a Wakeby distribution is equal to .
  • WakebyDistribution allows , , , and to be any positive real numbers and to be any real number.
