chi_square

chi_square

Class is used for generation of chi-square distributed real types random numbers.

Description

The class object is used in the oneapi::mkl::rng::generate() function to provide random numbers chi-square distributed with \(n\) degrees of freedom, \(n \in N; n > 0\).

The probability distribution is given by:

\[\begin{split}f_{n}(x) = \left\{ \begin{array}{rcl} \frac{x^{\frac{n - 2}{2}}e^{-\frac{x}{2}}}{2^{n/2}\Gamma(n/2)}, x \ge 0 \\ 0, x < 0 \end{array}\right.\end{split}\]

The cumulative distribution function is as follows:

\[\begin{split}F_{n}(x) = \left\{ \begin{array}{rcl} \int^{x}_{0}\frac{y^{\frac{n - 2}{2}}e^{-\frac{x}{2}}}{2^{n/2}\Gamma(n/2)}dy, x \ge 0 \\ 0, x < 0 \end{array}\right.\end{split}\]
