    iterGamma

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status dependencies

    Create an iterator which iteratively evaluates the gamma function.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/math-iter-special-gamma

    Usage

    var iterGamma = require( '@stdlib/math-iter-special-gamma' );

    iterGamma( iterator )

    Returns an iterator which iteratively evaluates the gamma function.

    var array2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-iterator' );
    
    var it = iterGamma( array2iterator( [ 4.0, -1.5, -0.5 ] ) );
    // returns <Object>
    
    var r = it.next().value;
    // returns 6.0
    
    r = it.next().value;
    // returns ~2.363
    
    r = it.next().value;
    // returns ~-3.545
    
    // ...

    The returned iterator protocol-compliant object has the following properties:

    • next: function which returns an iterator protocol-compliant object containing the next iterated value (if one exists) assigned to a value property and a done property having a boolean value indicating whether the iterator is finished.
    • return: function which closes an iterator and returns a single (optional) argument in an iterator protocol-compliant object.

    Notes

    • If an iterated value is non-numeric (including NaN), the returned iterator returns NaN. If non-numeric iterated values are possible, you are advised to provide an iterator which type checks and handles non-numeric values accordingly.
    • If an environment supports Symbol.iterator and a provided iterator is iterable, the returned iterator is iterable.

    Examples

    var uniform = require( '@stdlib/random-iter-uniform' );
    var iterGamma = require( '@stdlib/math-iter-special-gamma' );
    
    // Create a seeded iterator for generating pseudorandom numbers:
    var rand = uniform( -2.0, 2.0, {
        'seed': 1234,
        'iter': 10
    });
    
    // Create an iterator which consumes the pseudorandom number iterator:
    var it = iterGamma( rand );
    
    // Perform manual iteration...
    var r;
    while ( true ) {
        r = it.next();
        if ( r.done ) {
            break;
        }
        console.log( r.value );
    }

    Notice

    This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
