scipy.stats.tukeylambda() is a Tukey-Lambda 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 : Tukey-Lambda continuous random variable 
 

Code #1 : Creating Tukey-Lambda continuous random variable 
 

Python3




# importing library
 
from scipy.stats import tukeylambda
   
numargs = tukeylambda .numargs
a, b = 0.2, 0.8
rv = tukeylambda (a, b)
   
print ("RV : \n", rv) 

Output : 
 

RV : 
 scipy.stats._distn_infrastructure.rv_frozen object at 0x000002A9D9D71F48

Code #2 : Tukey-Lambda continuous variates and probability distribution 
 

Python3




import numpy as np
quantile = np.arange (0.01, 1, 0.1)
 
# Random Variates
R = tukeylambda .rvs(a, b, size = 10)
print ("Random Variates : \n", R)
 
# PDF
x = np.linspace(tukeylambda.ppf(0.01, a, b),
                tukeylambda.ppf(0.99, a, b), 10)
R = tukeylambda.pdf(x, 1, 3)
print ("\nProbability Distribution : \n", R)

Output : 
 

Random Variates : 
 [ 0.21772132 -0.22664155 -1.59857265  2.60861252  3.14751736  2.06655125
  0.62978366  0.28088051 -2.38894301 -1.16725442]

Probability Distribution : 
 [0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.5 0.5 0.5]

Code #3 : Graphical Representation. 
 

Python3




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 
 

Python3




import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
 
x = np.linspace(0, 5, 100)
    
# Varying positional arguments
y1 = tukeylambda.pdf(x, a, b)
y2 = tukeylambda.pdf(x, a, b)
plt.plot(x, y1, "*", x, y2, "r--")

Output :
