I`m using fitdistr() to estimate parameters for different distributions of my
data set.
Now I have problems to estimate the weibull Distribution and others. I found
the recommendation to use the pel…() function.
My question is: If I estimate parameters with the pel…() function. How can I
use them to create a theoretical distribution?
Like for normal distribution, exponential distribution, gamma distribution
and so on.
For example: I got this parameters:
> pelnor(x)
mu sigma
0.09968345 0.12117581
> pelexp(x)
xi alpha
-0.03704881 0.13673225
x ist my data set
I try to estimate parameters for different distribution based on my real
data set and then to create a theoretical data set based on the estimated
parameters. So I can compare to which distribution my data set match at
most. For this I use the chi quadrat test.
