Dear all,

apologies for interrupting your important work.

The new R package MittagLeffleR is now available on CRAN. It computes the
two types of Mittag-Leffler distributions, i.e. provides probability
density, distribution function, quantile function and random variate
generation for the Mittag-Leffler distributions, and the Mittag-Leffler
function itself. It is based on the Laplace-inversion algorithm by
Garrappa, R. (2015).

The first type of Mittag-Leffler distribution is geometric stable, (very)
heavy-tailed and typically models event durations (e.g. for earthquakes and
solar flares).

The second type is "inverse" to the sum-stable distribution, and typically
models the number of events when the waiting times between events are
heavy-tailed (a heavy-tailed renewal process).

For two examples, see https://strakaps.github.io/2017/06/26/mittagleffler/
