Australasian Biometrics and New Zealand Statistical
Association Joint Conference 2001:
Characterising the shape of the generalised lambda distribution
The generalised lambda distribution takes on a wide variety of shapes, making it useful in
simulation and in the assessment of robust statistical methods. This paper presents the
distribution and an improved scheme for categorising the shapes it can take on.
This paper will present a scheme for categorising the gld. One of the
tools it will use analysis using LQ-moments
