# GL2PPF

Name:
GL2PPF (LET)
Type:
Library Function
Purpose:
Compute the type 2 generalized logistic percent point function with shape parameter .
Description:
The standard form of the type 2 generalized logistic distribution has the cumulative distribution function: The generalized logistic type 2 percent point function is computed by numerically inverting the cumulative distribution function.

The general form of the type 2 generalized logistic cumulative distribution function can be obtained by replacing x in the above formula with (x-loc)/scale.

Syntax:
LET <y> = GL2PPF(<p>,<alpha>,<loc>,<scale>)
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <p> is a variable, number or parameter;
<alpha> is a number or parameter that specifies the value of the 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 <p> is) where the computed generalized logistic type 2 ppf value is stored;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.

The location and scale parameters are optional.

Examples:
LET A = GL2PPF(0.95,2)
LET X2 = GL2PPF(P1,ALPHA)
PLOT GL2PPF(P,ALPHA) FOR P = 0.01 0.01 0.99
