NPM version Build Status Coverage Status dependencies

Chi distribution skewness.

The skewness for a chi random variable with degrees of freedom.k is

Skewness for a chi distribution.

where μ is the mean of the distribution and σ its standard deviation.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/stats-base-dists-chi-skewness

Usage

var skewness = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-chi-skewness' );

skewness( k )

Returns the skewness of a chi distribution with degrees of freedom k.

var v = skewness( 9.0 );
// returns ~0.252

v = skewness( 0.5 );
// returns ~1.544

If provided k <= 0, the function returns NaN.

var v = skewness( -1.0 );
// returns NaN

Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var round = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-round' );
var skewness = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-chi-skewness' );

var k;
var v;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) {
    k = randu() * 20.0;
    v = skewness( k );
    console.log( 'k: %d, skew(X,k): %d', k.toFixed( 4 ), v.toFixed( 4 ) );
}
