DetailsDetails

• The probability density for value in a gamma distribution is proportional to for , and is zero for . »
• The probability density for value in a generalized gamma distribution is proportional to for , and is zero elsewhere.
• GammaDistribution allows , , and to be any positive real numbers and to be any real number.
• GammaDistribution can be used with such functions as Mean, CDF, and RandomVariate. »
