[SciPy-User] Gamma distribution in scipy.stats
Thu Jan 28 11:36:14 CST 2010
Could someone explain to me why doesn't scipy explicitly use the location
and scaling parameters representing its PDF?
gamma.pdf(x,a) = x**(a-1)*exp(-x)/gamma(a) for x >= 0, a > 0.
Gamma is represented with two or three parameters; as the function prototype
Also both GSL and R is fine representing the Gamma PDF with two parameters:
Should these instances need to be updated?
PS: I am wrapping the distribution definitions given in the GSL library for
SAGE. While doing this I want to make sure my understanding and use of the
terms and concepts are correct.
