# GL5CDF

Name:
GL5CDF (LET)
Type:
Library Function
Purpose:
Compute the type 5 generalized logistic cumulative distribution function with shape parameter .
Description:
Johnson, Kotz, and Balakrishnan (see Reference Section below) define five different versions of the generalized logistic distribution. The first four are referred to as type 1, type 2, type 3, and type 4. The fifth is a version used by Hosking. Although they do not give this version a specific name, Dataplot refers to it as either the generalized logistic type 5 or the Hosking generalized logistic distribution.

The standard form of the Hosking generalized logistic distribution has the cumulative distribution function:

The general form of the Hosking generalized logistic cumulative distribution function can be obtained by replacing x in the above formula with (x-loc)/scale.

Syntax:
LET <y> = GL5CDF(<x>,<alpha>,<loc>,<scale>)
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <x> is a variable, number or parameter;
<alpha> is a number or parameter that specifies the value of the first shape parameter;
<loc> is a number or parameter that specifies the value of the location parameter;
<scale> is a number or parameter that specifies the value of the scale parameter;
<y> is a variable or a parameter (depending on what <x> is) where the computed generalized logistic type 5 cdf value is stored;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.

The location and scale parameters are optional.

Examples:
LET A = GL5CDF(-3,2)
LET X2 = GL5CDF(X1,ALPHA)
PLOT GL5CDF(X,2) FOR X = -5 0.01 0.5
