# LDEPDF

Name:
LDEPDF (LET)
Type:
Library Function
Purpose:
Compute the standard form of the log double exponential (also known as the log Laplace distribution) probability density function.
Description:
The standard form of the log double exponential distribution has the following probability density function: Syntax:
LET <y> = LDEPDF(<x>,<alpha>)
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <x> is a variable, a number, or a parameter;
<y> is a variable or a parameter (depending on what <x> is) where the computed log double exponential pdf value is saved;
<alpha> is a variable, a number, or a parameter that specifies the shape parameter;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.
Examples:
LET A = LDEPDF(3,2)
LET A = LDEPDF(A1,1.5)
LET X2 = LDEPDF(X1,0.5)
Note:
The general form of the log double exponential distribution is: The parameter is a location parameter and the parameter is a positive scale parameter.

None
