# SDECDF

Name:
SDECDF (LET)
Type:
Library Function
Purpose:
Compute the skew double exponential cumulative distribution function.
Description:
The skew double exponential distribution has the following cumulative distribution function: For = 0, the skew double exponential reduces to the double exponential distribution. As goes to infinity, the skew double exponential tends to the exponential distribution.

The standard skew double exponential distribution can be generalized with a location parameter, , and a scale parameter . Simply replace x with in the above formula.

The skew double exponential distribution is also known as the skew Laplace distribution.

Syntax:
LET <y> = SDECDF(<x>,<lambda>,<loc>,<scale>)
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <x> is a variable or a parameter;
<lambda> is a number of parameter that specifies the value of the shape parameter;
<loc> is an optional number or parameter that specifies the value of the location parameter;
<scale> is an optional positive 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 skew double exponential cdf value is stored;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.
Examples:
LET Y = SDECDF(3,1)
LET Y = SDECDF(X1,LAMBDA)
PLOT SDECDF(X,LAMBDA) FOR X = -5 0.1 5
