The ExpInverseGamma distribution is defined over the real numbers such that X ~ ExpInverseGamma(..) => exp(X) ~ InverseGamma(..). The distribution is logically equivalent to tfb_log()(tfd_inverse_gamma(..)), but can be sampled with much better precision.

tfd_exp_inverse_gamma(
concentration,
scale = NULL,
log_scale = NULL,
validate_args = FALSE,
allow_nan_stats = TRUE,
name = "ExpGamma"
)

## Arguments

concentration Floating point tensor, the concentration params of the distribution(s). Must contain only positive values. Floating point tensor, the scale params of the distribution(s). Must contain only positive values. Mutually exclusive with log_scale. Floating point tensor, the natural logarithm of the scale params of the distribution(s). Mutually exclusive with scale. Logical, default FALSE. When TRUE distribution parameters are checked for validity despite possibly degrading runtime performance. When FALSE invalid inputs may silently render incorrect outputs. Default value: FALSE. Logical, default TRUE. When TRUE, statistics (e.g., mean, mode, variance) use the value NaN to indicate the result is undefined. When FALSE, an exception is raised if one or more of the statistic's batch members are undefined. name prefixed to Ops created by this class.

## Value

a distribution instance.

## Details

Mathematical Details

The probability density function (pdf) is very similar to ExpGamma,

pdf(x; alpha, beta > 0) = exp(-x)**(alpha - 1) exp(-exp(-x) beta) / Z - x
Z = Gamma(alpha) beta**(-alpha)


where:

• concentration = alpha,

• scale = beta,

• Z is the normalizing constant, and,

• Gamma is the gamma function.

The cumulative density function (cdf) is,

cdf(x; alpha, beta, x) = 1 - GammaInc(alpha, beta exp(-x)) / Gamma(alpha)


where GammaInc is the upper incomplete Gamma function.

Distribution parameters are automatically broadcast in all functions. Samples of this distribution are reparameterized (pathwise differentiable). The derivatives are computed using the approach described in Figurnov et al, 2018.
