Hi, the package bs, version 1.0, is available.
Yet, I've gote some problems with it, specifically with the maximum
likelihood estimation of the parameters \alpha and \beta of
Birnbaum-Saunders distribution.
Let the following code run:
library(bs)
alpha<-1.5
beta<-0.5
n<-100
set.seed(1)
x<-rbs(n,alpha,beta)
est1bs(x)
The MLE algorithm does not converge. Not only for this pair of values and
for this sample... Please have a look...
