RiceDistribution

RiceDistribution[, ]
represents a Rice distribution with shape parameters and .

RiceDistribution[m, , ]
represents a Norton-Rice distribution with parameters m, , and .

DetailsDetails

  • RiceDistribution is also known as Nakagami- distribution.
  • The probability density for value in a Rice distribution is proportional to x exp(-(alpha^2+x^2)/(2 beta^2)) TemplateBox[{0, {{(, {x,  , alpha}, )}, /, {(, {beta, ^, 2}, )}}}, BesselI] for , and is zero for .
  • The probability density for value in a Norton-Rice distribution is proportional to x^m exp(-m(alpha^2+x^2)/(2 beta^2)) TemplateBox[{{m, -, 1}, {m, {{(, {x,  , alpha}, )}, /, {(, {beta, ^, 2}, )}}}}, BesselI] for , and is zero for .
  • RiceDistribution allows to be any non-negative real number and m, to be any positive real numbers.
  • RiceDistribution can be used with such functions as Mean, CDF, and RandomVariate.
