with r denoting the shape parameter.
This distribution can be generalized with location and scale parameters in the usual way using the relation
If r = 1, the Burr type 10 distribution is equivalent to the Rayleigh distribution. For this reason, the Burr type 10 distribution is also referred to as the generalized Rayleigh distribution. It has found use in reliability applications.
where <p> is a number, parameter, or variable in the interval (0,1);
<y> is a variable or a parameter (depending on what <p> is) where the computed Burr type 10 ppf value is stored;
<r> is a positive number, parameter, or variable that specifies the shape parameter;
<loc> is a number, parameter, or variable that specifies the location parameter;
<scale> is a positive number, parameter, or variable that specifies the scale parameter;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.
If <loc> and <scale> are omitted, they default to 0 and 1, respectively.
