RandomState.beta(a, b, size=None)
Draw samples from a Beta distribution.
The Beta distribution is a special case of the Dirichlet distribution, and is related to the Gamma distribution. It has the probability distribution function
where the normalisation, B, is the beta function,
It is often seen in Bayesian inference and order statistics.
Parameters: |
a : float or array_like of floats Alpha, non-negative. b : float or array_like of floats Beta, non-negative. size : int or tuple of ints, optional Output shape. If the given shape is, e.g., |
---|---|
Returns: |
out : ndarray or scalar Drawn samples from the parameterized beta distribution. |
