Recent changes to 72: frequency plot documentation doesn't identify gamma paramshttps://sourceforge.net/p/gretl/bugs/72/Recent changes to 72: frequency plot documentation doesn't identify gamma paramsenThu, 07 Aug 2008 23:36:44 -0000frequency plot documentation doesn't identify gamma paramshttps://sourceforge.net/p/gretl/bugs/72/The help documentation and Gretl manual documentation for Variable->Frequency plot don't mention which of the two parameters for the gamma distribution is the shape, and which of the two is the scale.
For example, when I graphed a frequency plot of some of my data against a gamma distribution, the plot window displayed "gamma\(15.632,3.8047\)". But none of the documentation tells which parameter is first. Also, according to the Wikipedia article on gamma distributions, gamma distributions are frequently characterized by either the scale or the inverse of the scale \(the "rate"\), so the documentation needs to mention which one gretl is using.AnonymousThu, 07 Aug 2008 23:36:44 -0000https://sourceforge.net02827474fcd1d3391464541b2dd5c21ad0fb13e7
