       gbhill - Hill Maximum Likelihhod estimation


       gbhill [options] <function definition>


       Maximum  Likelihood  estimation of distribution based on extremal (tail) observations. The
       distributions included are: exponential, pareto1, pareto3, gaussian. Provide the  name  of
       the distribution and the initial values of the parameters in the command line.


       -O     type of output (default 0)

       0      parameters and min NLL

       1      parameters and errors

       2      the distribution function

       3      the density function

       4      transformed observations: uniform in [0.1] under the null

       5      Renyi residuals: iid uniform in [0.1] under the null

       -M     method used (default 0)

       0      unconditional, upper tail

       1      threshold, upper tail

       2      unconditional, lower tail

       3      threshold, lower tail

       -V     variance matrix estimation (default2)

       0      < J^{-1} >

       1      < H^{-1} >

       2      < H^{-1} J H^{-1} >

       -v     verbosity level (default0)

       0      just results

              3+ minimization steps

       -a     print entire set for -O 1,2

       gbhill pareto1 1 1 < file.dat
              estimate the Pareto type 1 distribution, initial values are gamma=1 and b=1

       gbhill -u .2 pareto1 1 1 < file.dat
              the same using only top 20% observations
