hi

i have an experimental dataset which i think is coming from a pareto/powerlaw distribution.

i am trying to use the 2 parameter pareto distribution from Jim Lindsey's rmutil package (i am open to using any package however.)

i would like R to compute estimates for the 2 pareto parameters based on my dataset; what commands would achieve this?

thanks
