[Soft-deprecated] Generates a distribution definition when only parameter estimates are available for gamma distributed parameters. See rgamma for distribution information.

  shape,
  shape_sd,
  scale,
  scale_sd,
  mean,
  mean_sd,
  sd,
  sd_sd,
  max_value,
  samples
)

Arguments

shape

Numeric, shape parameter of the gamma distribution.

shape_sd

Numeric, standard deviation of the shape parameter.

scale

Numeric, scale parameter of the gamma distribution.

scale_sd

Numeric, standard deviation of the scale parameter.

mean

Numeric, log mean parameter of the gamma distribution.

mean_sd

Numeric, standard deviation of the log mean parameter.

sd

Numeric, log sd parameter of the gamma distribution.

sd_sd

Numeric, standard deviation of the log sd parameter.

max_value

Numeric, the maximum value to allow. Defaults to 120. Samples outside of this range are resampled.

samples

Numeric, number of sample distributions to generate.

Value

A data.table defining the distribution as used by dist_skel
