Mixture of Gamma distribution

Description

Random generation and density function for a finite mixture of Gamma distribution.

Usage

rmixgamma( n = 10, weight = 1, alpha = 1, beta = 1 )

dmixgamma( x, weight = 1, alpha = 1, beta = 1 )

Arguments

n

number of observations.

x

vector of quantiles.

weight

vector of probability weights, with length equal to number of components (k). This is assumed to sum to 1; if not, it is normalized.

alpha

vector of non-negative parameters of the Gamma distribution.

beta

vector of non-negative parameters of the Gamma distribution.

Details

Sampling from finite mixture of Gamma distribution, with density:

Pr(x|\underline{w}, \underline{α}, \underline{β}) = ∑_{i=1}^{k} w_{i} Gamma(x|α_{i}, β_{i}),

where

Gamma(x|α_{i}, β_{i})=\frac{(β_{i})^{α_{i}}}{Γ(α_{i})} x^{α_{i}-1} e^{-β_{i}x}.

Value

Generated data as an vector with size n.
