BetaDistribution

BetaDistribution[Alpha, Beta] gives the continuous beta distribution with shape parameters Alpha and Beta.

• When  and  have independent gamma distributions with equal scale parameters, the random variable  follows the beta distribution BetaDistribution[Alpha, Beta], where  and  are the shape parameters of the gamma variables.
