Very helpful for the reseachers who are not good at statistics

Hi...Thanks for sharing...Is there an applicable range of the code regarding the parameter alpha? Or it is accurate through the whole range [0, 2]? Thanks.

Could the toolbox's author please contact me by email as i found errors to share in coding stblpdf so far? cheers.

Thanks for the code. However, it's worth pointing that Koutrouvelis use Fama & Roll in the SCF. Thus it's not a bad idea to use the McCulloh approach (adequate for asymmetric distributions) for the initial spread and location estimates.
Technically, the code works with the 'percentile' option (McCulloh) and not with 'ecf' (for some reasons) on my side. As error I get: Warning: X is rank deficient to within machine precision.
> In regress at 84
In stblfit at 127
Warning: X is rank deficient to within machine precision.
> In regress at 84
In stblfit at 169
Undefined function or variable "bestparams". ps: Weird as bestpararms has already been defined as column vector.

Cheers

Thank for the code I want to ask if when I fit data to alpha stable distribution means I forced them to destribute as alpha stable ?or ,what does fit mean?

There is an issue trying to use the stblcdf on a matrix of points, some of the lines of code use 'any' which returns a vector. The result a silent returning some entries to be zero.

Excellent!

Thanks a lot for the code. It's been really helpful for my research. For stbfit, is it possible to specify some of the 4 parameters and only fit the rest?

best regards.

Great code!!, It helped me a lot to understand stable distributions, Thanks.

Do you have by chance any library for LFSN?

Simple to use, seems to do the job.
