We are proud to announce that version 3.0-0 of actuar is now available on CRAN.
This newest release further extends support of the package for heavy tail and extreme value size distributions. It also introduces a package API, so that developers may easily integrate our C code into their own package.
From the NEWS file:
• Support functions ‘[dpqrm,lev]fpareto’ for the Feller-Pareto
distribution and related Pareto distributions with a
location parameter. The Feller-Pareto defines a large family
of distributions encompassing the transformed beta family
and many variants of the Pareto distribution. Using the
nomenclature of Arnold (2015), the following distributions
are now supported by ‘actuar’: Feller-Pareto, Pareto IV,
Pareto III, and Pareto II. The Pareto I was already
supported under the name Single Parameter Pareto.
• The package now exposes through an API its 200+ C routines
for probability functions and the beta integral. This is
documented in a new section of the “distributions” package
vignette. See file ‘include/actuarAPI.h’ in the package
installation directory for the complete list of exported
