rv_continuous.interval(confidence=None, *args, **kwds)[source]#

Confidence interval with equal areas around the median.

Deprecated since version 1.9.0: Parameter alpha is replaced by parameter confidence to avoid name collisions with the shape parameter alpha of some distributions. Parameter alpha will be removed in SciPy 1.11.0.

confidencearray_like of float

Probability that an rv will be drawn from the returned range. Each value should be in the range [0, 1].

arg1, arg2, …array_like

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

locarray_like, optional

location parameter, Default is 0.
