Description

The Erlang distribution is a two-parameter family of continuous probability distributions with support x \in [0,∞). The two parameters are a positive integer shape parameter k and a positive real rate parameter λ. The Erlang distribution with shape parameter k = 1 simplifies to the exponential distribution, and it is a special case of the gamma distribution. It corresponds to a sum of k independent exponential variables with mean 1 / λ each.

Usage

1
Erlang(k, lambda)

Arguments

k

The shape parameter. Can be any positive integer number.

lambda

The rate parameter. Can be any positive number.

Value

An Erlang object.
