Struct rand_distr::Gamma

pub struct Gamma<F> where
F: Float,
StandardNormal: Distribution<F>,
Exp1: Distribution<F>,
Open01: Distribution<F>,
{ /* private fields */ }
Expand description

The Gamma distribution Gamma(shape, scale) distribution.

The density function of this distribution is

f(x) =  x^(k - 1) * exp(-x / θ) / (Γ(k) * θ^k)

where Γ is the Gamma function, k is the shape and θ is the scale and both k and θ are strictly positive.

The algorithm used is that described by Marsaglia & Tsang 20001, falling back to directly sampling from an Exponential for shape == 1, and using the boosting technique described in that paper for shape < 1.

Example

use rand_distr::{Distribution, Gamma};

let gamma = Gamma::new(2.0, 5.0).unwrap();
println!("{} is from a Gamma(2, 5) distribution", v);
