scipy.stats.zipf() is a zipf discrete random variable. It is inherited from the of generic methods as an instance of the rv_discrete class. It completes the methods with details specific for this particular distribution.

Parameters :

x : quantiles
loc : [optional]location parameter. Default = 0
scale : [optional]scale parameter. Default = 1
moments : [optional] composed of letters [‘mvsk’]; ‘m’ = mean, ‘v’ = variance, ‘s’ = Fisher’s skew and ‘k’ = Fisher’s kurtosis. (default = ‘mv’).

Results : zipf discrete random variable

Code #1 : Creating zipf discrete random variable




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

Output :

RV : 
 scipy.stats._distn_infrastructure.rv_frozen object at 0x0000016A4D865848

Code #2 : zipf discrete variates and probability distribution




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

Output :

Random Variates : 
 nan

Probability Distribution : 
 [nan nan nan nan nan nan nan nan nan nan]

Code #3 : Graphical Representation.




import numpy as np 
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
     
distribution = np.linspace(0, np.minimum(rv.dist.b, 2)) 
print("Distribution : \n", distribution) 

Output :

Distribution :
