MULTIVARIATE STATISTICS PACKAGE SYMBOL

# WishartDistribution

WishartDistribution[Σ,m]
represents a Wishart distribution with scale matrix Σ and degrees of freedom parameter m.

## DetailsDetails

• To use WishartDistribution, you first need to load the Multivariate Statistics Package using Needs["MultivariateStatistics`"].
• The probability density for a symmetric positive definite matrix in a Wishart distribution is proportional to .
• The scale matrix Σ can be any symmetric positive definite matrix. The parameter m can be any number such that m>Length[Σ].
• For integer m, the Wishart distribution gives the distribution of covariance matrices of multinormal samples.
• WishartDistribution can be used with such functions as Mean, PDF, and RandomReal.
