The 4-parameter generalized lambda distribution (GLD) is a flexible distribution capable of mimicking the shapes of many distributions and data samples including those with heavy tails. The method of L-moments and the recently developed method of trimmed L-moments (TL-moments) are attractive techniques for parameter estimation for heavy-tailed distributions(More)
Description The package implements the statistical theory of L-moments including L-moment estimation, probability-weighted moment estimation, parameter estimation for numerous familiar and not-so-familiar distributions, and L-moment estimation for the same distributions from the parameters. L-moments are derived from the expectations of order statistics and(More)
