Abstract: STABLEREGKW returns the estimated parameters ALPHA, BETA, SIGMA, MU of a stable distribution vector. STABLEREGKW uses the characteristic function regression method of S.M.Kogon, D.B.Williams (1998) "Characteristic Function Based Estimation of Stable Distribution Parameters", in "A Practical Guide to Heavy Tails: Statistical Techniques and Applications", R.J.Adler,R.E.Feldman, M.Taqqu eds., Birkhauser, Boston, 311-335.
