rv_discrete.rvs(self, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Random variates of given type.

arg1, arg2, arg3,…array_like

The shape parameter(s) for the distribution (see docstring of the instance object for more information).

locarray_like, optional

Location parameter (default=0).

sizeint or tuple of ints, optional

Defining number of random variates (Default is 1). Note that size has to be given as keyword, not as positional argument.

random_state{None, int, RandomState, Generator}, optional

This parameter defines the object to use for drawing random variates. If random_state is None the RandomState singleton is used. If random_state is an int, a new RandomState instance is used, seeded with random_state. If random_state is already a RandomState or Generator instance, then that object is used. Default is None.

rvsndarray or scalar

Random variates of given size.
