Python – Moyal Distribution in Statistics

  • Last Updated : 31 Dec, 2019

scipy.stats.moyal() is a Moyal 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 :

q : lower and upper tail probability
x : quantiles
loc : [optional]location parameter. Default = 0
scale : [optional]scale parameter. Default = 1
size : [tuple of ints, optional] shape or random variates.
moments : [optional] composed of letters [‘mvsk’]; ‘m’ = mean, ‘v’ = variance, ‘s’ = Fisher’s skew and ‘k’ = Fisher’s kurtosis. (default = ‘mv’).

Results : Moyal continuous random variable

Code #1 : Creating Moyal continuous random variable




# importing library
  
from scipy.stats import moyal  
    
numargs = moyal.numargs 
a, b = 4.32, 3.18
rv = moyal(a, b) 
    
print ("RV : \n", rv)  

Output :

RV : 
 scipy.stats._distn_infrastructure.rv_frozen object at 0x000002A9D65832480x000002A9D6583248

Code #2 : Moyal continuous variates and probability distribution




import numpy as np 
quantile = np.arange (0.01, 1, 0.1
  
# Random Variates 
R = moyal.rvs(a, b) 
print ("Random Variates : \n", R) 
  
# PDF 
R = moyal.pdf(a, b, quantile) 
print ("\nProbability Distribution : \n", R) 

Output :

Random Variates : 
 -0.10758844036768522

Probability Distribution : 
 [7.01656572e-24 2.03739617e-02 1.25585161e-01 2.02076426e-01
 2.34901631e-01 2.42507808e-01 2.37825337e-01 2.27718227e-01
 2.15604463e-01 2.03139800e-01]

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 :

 1.95918367 2.        ]
 

Code #4 : Varying Positional Arguments




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