represents the Erlang distribution with shape parameter k and rate λ.
- The probability density for value in an Erlang distribution is proportional to for , and is zero for .
- ErlangDistribution[k,λ] is equivalent to TransformedDistribution[x1+…+xk,…] with each from ExponentialDistribution[λ].
- ErlangDistribution allows k to be any positive integer and λ to be any positive real number.
- ErlangDistribution can be used with such functions as Mean, CDF, and RandomVariate.
