AltDistributions

Lifecycle Build Status codecov.io Documentation

This is a collection of some probability distributions I find useful, primarily for Bayesian estimation. Eventually, they should be considered for contributing to Distributions.jl, but currently they reside in this package because

  1. I am experimenting with the interface,
  2. I am experimenting with the implementation (making it friendly to automatic differentiation),
  3. not all functionality is implemented (eg only the logpdf).

When the name of distributions coincides with one in Distributions, it is prefixed with Alt, eg AltMvNormal.
