That is, we can view the negative binomial as a Poisson(λ) distribution, where λ is itself a random variable, distributed as a gamma distribution with shape = r and scale θ = p/(1 − p) or correspondingly rate β = (1 − p)/p. To display the intuition behind this statement, consider two independent Poisson processes, “Success” and “Failure”, with intensities p and 1 − p. Together, the Success and Failure pr

ia (Redirected from Orthogonal function) Jump to: navigation, search In mathematics, orthogonal functions belong to a function space which is a vector space (usually over R) that has a bilinear form. <span>When the function space has an interval as the domain, the bilinear form may be the integral of the product of functions over the interval: ⟨ f , g ⟩ = ∫ f ( x ) g ( x ) d x . {\displaystyle \langle f,g\rangle =\int f(x)g(x)\,dx.} The functions f and g are orthogonal when this integral is zero: ⟨ f , g ⟩ = 0. {\displaystyle \langle f,\ g\rangle =0.} As with a basis of vectors in a finite-dimensional space, orthogonal functions can form an infinite basis for a function space. Suppose {f n }, n = 0, 1, 2, … is a sequence of orthogonal functions. If f n has positive support then ⟨ f n
