# Python – Normal Inverse Gaussian Distribution in Statistics

scipy.stats.norminvgauss() is a Normal Inverse Gaussian 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 : Normal Inverse Gaussian continuous random variable

Code #1 : Creating Normal Inverse Gaussian continuous random variable

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

Output :

RV :
scipy.stats._distn_infrastructure.rv_frozen object at 0x000002A9D7E7F988

Code #2 : Normal Inverse Gaussian continuous variates and probability distribution

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

Output :

Random Variates :
1.3435537740460517

Probability Distribution :

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 :
