Mathematical and statistical functions for the Logarithmic distribution, which is commonly used to model consumer purchase habits in economics and is derived from the Maclaurin series expansion of \(-ln(1-p)\).

Returns an R6 object inheriting from class SDistribution.

The Logarithmic distribution parameterised with a parameter, \(\theta\), is defined by the pmf, $$f(x) = -\theta^x/xlog(1-\theta)$$ for \(0 < \theta < 1\).

The distribution is supported on \({1,2,3,\ldots}\).

`mean()`

The arithmetic mean of a (discrete) probability distribution X is the expectation $$E_X(X) = \sum p_X(x)*x$$ with an integration analogue for continuous distributions.

`mode()`

The mode of a probability distribution is the point at which the pdf is a local maximum, a distribution can be unimodal (one maximum) or multimodal (several maxima).

`variance()`

The variance of a distribution is defined by the formula $$var_X = E[X^2] - E[X]^2$$ where \(E_X\) is the expectation of distribution X. If the distribution is multivariate the covariance matrix is returned.

`skewness()`

The skewness of a distribution is defined by the third standardised moment, $$sk_X = E_X[\frac{x - \mu}{\sigma}^3]$$ where \(E_X\) is the expectation of distribution X, \(\mu\) is the mean of the distribution and \(\sigma\) is the standard deviation of the distribution.

`kurtosis()`

The kurtosis of a distribution is defined by the fourth standardised moment, $$k_X = E_X[\frac{x - \mu}{\sigma}^4]$$ where \(E_X\) is the expectation of distribution X, \(\mu\) is the mean of the distribution and \(\sigma\) is the standard deviation of the distribution. Excess Kurtosis is Kurtosis - 3.

`mgf()`

The moment generating function is defined by $$mgf_X(t) = E_X[exp(xt)]$$ where X is the distribution and \(E_X\) is the expectation of the distribution X.

`cf()`

The characteristic function is defined by $$cf_X(t) = E_X[exp(xti)]$$ where X is the distribution and \(E_X\) is the expectation of the distribution X.

`pgf()`

The probability generating function is defined by $$pgf_X(z) = E_X[exp(z^x)]$$ where X is the distribution and \(E_X\) is the expectation of the distribution X.
