scipy.stats.invgauss() is an inverted gauss continuous random variable. It is inherited from the of generic methods as an instance of the rv_continuous class. It completes the methods with details specific for this particular distribution.

Parameters :

a : shape parameter
c : special case of gengauss. Default equals to c = -1

Code #1 : Creating Inverse Gaussian continuous random variable




# importing library
from scipy.stats import invgauss   
     
numargs = invgauss.numargs 
[a, b] = [0.7, 0.4] * numargs 
rv = invgauss (a, b) 
     
print ("RV : \n", rv)  

Output :

RV : 
 scipy.stats._distn_infrastructure.rv_frozen object at 0x1a220d7bd0

Code #2 : Inverse Gaussian continuous variates and probability distribution




import numpy as np 
quantile = np.arange (0.01, 1
      
# Random Variates 
R = invgauss.ppf(0.01, a) 
print ("Random Variates : \n", R) 
     
# PDF 
R = invgauss.pdf(invgauss.ppf(0.01, a), a) 
print ("\nProbability Distribution : \n", R) 

Output :

Random Variates : 
 0.25801533159920903

Probability Distribution : 
 0.15984442779701688

Code #3 : Graphical Representation.




import numpy as np 
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
     
distribution = np.linspace(0, np.minimum(rv.dist.b, 3)) 
print("Distribution : \n", distribution) 
     
plot = plt.plot(distribution, rv.pdf(distribution)) 

Output :

Distribution : 
 [0.         0.06122449 0.12244898 0.18367347 0.24489796 0.30612245

 2.93877551 3.        ]

Code #4 : Varying Positional Arguments




import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
import numpy as np 
     
x = np.linspace(0, 5, 100
     
# Varying positional arguments 
y1 = invgauss .pdf(x, 1, 3
y2 = invgauss .pdf(x, 1, 4
plt.plot(x, y1, "*", x, y2, "r--"
