arch.univariate.Normal.partial_moment

Normal.partial_moment(n, z=0.0, parameters=None)[source]

Order n lower partial moment from -inf to z

Parameters
  • n (int) – Order of partial moment

  • z (float, optional) – Upper bound for partial moment integral

  • parameters (ndarray, optional) – Distribution parameters. Use None for parameterless distributions.

Returns

Partial moment

Return type

float
