# Generalized Logistic Distribution#

Has been used in the analysis of extreme values. There is one shape parameter $$c>0$$. The support is $$x \in \mathcal{R}$$.

\begin{eqnarray*} f\left(x;c\right) & = & \frac{c\exp\left(-x\right)}{\left[1+\exp\left(-x\right)\right]^{c+1}}\\ F\left(x;c\right) & = & \frac{1}{\left[1+\exp\left(-x\right)\right]^{c}}\\ G\left(q;c\right) & = & -\log\left(q^{-1/c}-1\right)\end{eqnarray*}
$M\left(t\right)=\frac{c}{1-t}\,_{2}F_{1}\left(1+c,\,1-t\,;\,2-t\,;-1\right)$
\begin{eqnarray*} \mu & = & \gamma+\psi_{0}\left(c\right)\\ \mu_{2} & = & \frac{\pi^{2}}{6}+\psi_{1}\left(c\right)\\ \gamma_{1} & = & \frac{\psi_{2}\left(c\right)+2\zeta\left(3\right)}{\mu_{2}^{3/2}}\\ \gamma_{2} & = & \frac{\left(\frac{\pi^{4}}{15}+\psi_{3}\left(c\right)\right)}{\mu_{2}^{2}}\\ m_{d} & = & \log c\\ m_{n} & = & -\log\left(2^{1/c}-1\right)\end{eqnarray*}

Note that the polygamma function is

\begin{eqnarray*} \psi_{n}\left(z\right) & = & \frac{d^{n+1}}{dz^{n+1}}\log\Gamma\left(z\right)\\ & = & \left(-1\right)^{n+1}n!\sum_{k=0}^{\infty}\frac{1}{\left(z+k\right)^{n+1}}\\ & = & \left(-1\right)^{n+1}n!\zeta\left(n+1,z\right)\end{eqnarray*}

where $$\zeta\left(k,x\right)$$ is a generalization of the Riemann zeta function called the Hurwitz zeta function. Note that $$\zeta\left(n\right)\equiv\zeta\left(n,1\right)$$.
