The Inverse Gamma Distribution

Description

Density function and random generation from the inverse Gamma distribution.

Usage

rinvgamma(n, shape, rate = 1)
dinvgamma(x, shape, rate = 1)

Arguments

x Scalar location to evaluate density.
n Number of draws from the distribution.
shape Scalar shape parameter.
rate Scalar rate parameter (default value one).

Value

dinvgamma evaluates the density at x. rinvgamma takes n draws from the inverse Gamma distribution. The parameterization is consistent with the Gamma Distribution in the stats package.

Examples
