scipy.stats.nakagami()

A Nakagami continuous random variable.

Continuous random variables are defined from a standard form and may require some shape parameters to complete its specification. Any optional keyword parameters can be passed to the methods of the RV object as given below:

Parameters: x : array-like quantiles q : array-like lower or upper tail probability nu : array-like shape parameters loc : array-like, optional location parameter (default=0) scale : array-like, optional scale parameter (default=1) size : int or tuple of ints, optional shape of random variates (default computed from input arguments ) moments : string, optional composed of letters [‘mvsk’] specifying which moments to compute where ‘m’ = mean, ‘v’ = variance, ‘s’ = (Fisher’s) skew and ‘k’ = (Fisher’s) kurtosis. (default=’mv’) nakagami.rvs(nu,loc=0,scale=1,size=1) : random variates nakagami.pdf(x,nu,loc=0,scale=1) : probability density function nakagami.cdf(x,nu,loc=0,scale=1) : cumulative density function nakagami.sf(x,nu,loc=0,scale=1) : survival function (1-cdf — sometimes more accurate) nakagami.ppf(q,nu,loc=0,scale=1) : percent point function (inverse of cdf — percentiles) nakagami.isf(q,nu,loc=0,scale=1) : inverse survival function (inverse of sf) nakagami.stats(nu,loc=0,scale=1,moments=’mv’) : mean(‘m’), variance(‘v’), skew(‘s’), and/or kurtosis(‘k’) nakagami.entropy(nu,loc=0,scale=1) : (differential) entropy of the RV. nakagami.fit(data,nu,loc=0,scale=1) : Parameter estimates for nakagami data Alternatively, the object may be called (as a function) to fix the shape, : location, and scale parameters returning a “frozen” continuous RV object: : rv = nakagami(nu,loc=0,scale=1) : frozen RV object with the same methods but holding the given shape, location, and scale fixed

Examples

>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
>>> numargs = nakagami.numargs
>>> [ nu ] = [0.9,]*numargs
>>> rv = nakagami(nu)

Display frozen pdf

>>> x = np.linspace(0,np.minimum(rv.dist.b,3))
>>> h=plt.plot(x,rv.pdf(x))

Check accuracy of cdf and ppf

>>> prb = nakagami.cdf(x,nu)
>>> h=plt.semilogy(np.abs(x-nakagami.ppf(prb,c))+1e-20)

Random number generation

>>> R = nakagami.rvs(nu,size=100)

Nakagami distribution

nakagami.pdf(x,nu) = 2*nu**nu/gamma(nu) * x**(2*nu-1) * exp(-nu*x**2) for x > 0, nu > 0.
