UNU.RAN object for Beta distribution

Description

Create UNU.RAN object for a Beta distribution with with parameters shape1 and shape2.

[Distribution] – Beta.

Usage

1
udbeta(shape1, shape2, lb=0, ub=1)

Arguments

shape1,shape2

positive shape parameters of the Beta distribution.

lb

lower bound of (truncated) distribution.

ub

upper bound of (truncated) distribution.

Details

The Beta distribution with parameters shape1 = a and shape2 = b has density

f(x) = Gamma(a+b)/(Gamma(a)Gamma(b))x^(a-1)(1-x)^(b-1)

for a > 0, b > 0 and 0 <= x <= 1.

The domain of the distribution can be truncated to the interval (lb,ub).

Value

An object of class "unuran.cont".

## Create distribution object for beta distribution
distr <- udbeta(shape1=3,shape2=7)
## Generate generator object; use method PINV (inversion)
gen <- pinvd.new(distr)
## Draw a sample of size 100
x <- ur(gen,100)
