Numpy Random Chisquare Distribution
The purpose of this article is to discuss Numpy Random Chisquare distribution and how to utilize the numpy library to produce random numbers and analyze various statistical properties.
What is Chisquare Distribution?
The chisquare distribution is a continuous probability distribution used in statistics to model the sum of the squares of k independent standard normal random variables.
The chisquare distribution has a single parameter, k, which represents the degrees of freedom.
The PDF of the chisquare distribution is given by:
f(x; k) = 1/(2^(k/2) * Γ(k/2)) * x^(k/2 - 1) * e^(-x/2)
where Γ is the gamma function, x is the random variable, and k is the degrees of freedom.
Numpy Random Chisquare
The numpy random chisquare function is used to generate random numbers from a chisquare distribution.
The function takes the degrees of freedom (df) as input and returns an array of random numbers from the chisquare distribution with the specified degrees of freedom.
There are Three parameters in it:
|df||(level of freedom).|
|size||Displays the array’s shape.|
|None||Default value is None, which returns a single random number.|
Calculate the chi squared distribution with the following degree of freedom (30) and dimension four by one:
Make a sample for chi squared probability with degree of freedom 360 and size two by two:
ChiSquare Distribution Visualization
In this case, we can use matplotlib to plot a histogram of the random numbers generated by numpy random chisquare.
