mvdigamma: Multivariate Digamma Function In CholWishart: Cholesky Decomposition of the Wishart Distribution

Description

A special mathematical function related to the gamma function, generalized for multivariate distributions. The multivariate digamma function is the derivative of the log of the multivariate gamma function; for p = 1 it is the same as the univariate digamma function.

psi_p(a)=ā psi(a+(1-i)/2)

where psi is the univariate digamma function (the derivative of the log-gamma function).

Usage

 `1` ```mvdigamma(x, p) ```

Arguments

 `x` non-negative numeric vector, matrix, or array `p` positive integer, dimension of a square matrix

Value

vector of values of multivariate digamma function.
