Calculates the mean and variance of an F variate.

An F variate is the ratio of two chi-squared random variable.

connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

k1

Number of degrees of freedom of the first chi-squared variate that forms the F variate.

This input must be greater than 0.

Default: 1

datatype_icon

k2

Number of degrees of freedom of the second chi-squared random variable that forms the F variate.

This input must be greater than 0.

Default: 1

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

mean

Expected mean of the random variable.

datatype_icon

variance

Expected variance of the random variable.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Algorithm for Calculating the Mean and Variance of an F Variate

This node uses the following equations to calculate the mean and variance of an F variate.

mean = k 2 k 2 2 , k 2 > 2
variance = 2 k 2 2 ( k 1 + k 2 2 ) k 1 ( k 2 2 ) 2 ( k 2 4 ) , k 2 > 4

where k1 is the degrees of freedom of the first chi-squared random variable that forms the F variate and k2 is the degrees of freedom of the second chi-squared random variable that forms the F variate.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: This product does not support FPGA devices

Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
