# Power Log Normal DistributionΒΆ

A generalization of the log-normal distribution $$\sigma>0$$ and $$c>0$$ and $$x>0$$

\begin{eqnarray*} f\left(x;\sigma,c\right) & = & \frac{c}{x\sigma}\phi\left(\frac{\log x}{\sigma}\right)\left(\Phi\left(-\frac{\log x}{\sigma}\right)\right)^{c-1}\\ F\left(x;\sigma,c\right) & = & 1-\left(\Phi\left(-\frac{\log x}{\sigma}\right)\right)^{c}\\ G\left(q;\sigma,c\right) & = & \exp\left[-\sigma\Phi^{-1}\left[\left(1-q\right)^{1/c}\right]\right]\end{eqnarray*}
$\mu_{n}^{\prime}=\int_{0}^{1}\exp\left[-n\sigma\Phi^{-1}\left(y^{1/c}\right)\right]dy$
\begin{eqnarray*} \mu & = & \mu_{1}^{\prime}\\ \mu_{2} & = & \mu_{2}^{\prime}-\mu^{2}\\ \gamma_{1} & = & \frac{\mu_{3}^{\prime}-3\mu\mu_{2}-\mu^{3}}{\mu_{2}^{3/2}}\\ \gamma_{2} & = & \frac{\mu_{4}^{\prime}-4\mu\mu_{3}-6\mu^{2}\mu_{2}-\mu^{4}}{\mu_{2}^{2}}-3\end{eqnarray*}

This distribution reduces to the log-normal distribution when $$c=1.$$
