Pareto Distribution


Pareto Distribution

A distribution following Pareto's law i.e. 80-20 distribution (20% factors cause 80% outcome).

It has two parameter:

a - shape parameter.

size - The shape of the returned array.

Example

Draw out a sample for pareto distribution with shape of 2 with size 2x3:

from numpy import random

x = random.pareto(a=2, size=(2, 3))

print(x)
