# Variance

Kumaraswamy's double bounded distribution variance.

The variance for a Kumaraswamy's double bounded random variable with first shape parameter `a` and second shape parameter `b` is

where the raw moments of the distribution are given by

with `B` denoting the beta function.

## Installation

`npm install @stdlib/stats-base-dists-kumaraswamy-variance`

## Usage

`var variance = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-kumaraswamy-variance' );`

#### variance( a, b )

Returns the variance of a Kumaraswamy's double bounded distribution with first shape parameter `a` and second shape parameter `b`.

```var v = variance( 1.0, 1.0 );
// returns ~0.083

v = variance( 4.0, 12.0 );
// returns ~0.017

v = variance( 2.0, 8.0 );
// returns ~0.021```

If provided `NaN` as any argument, the function returns `NaN`.

```var v = variance( NaN, 2.0 );
// returns NaN

v = variance( 2.0, NaN );
// returns NaN```

If provided `a <= 0`, the function returns `NaN`.

```var y = variance( -1.0, 0.5 );
// returns NaN

y = variance( 0.0, 0.5 );
// returns NaN```

If provided `b <= 0`, the function returns `NaN`.

```var y = variance( 0.5, -1.0 );
// returns NaN

y = variance( 0.5, 0.0 );
// returns NaN```

## Examples

```var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var variance = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-kumaraswamy-variance' );

var a;
var b;
var v;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) {
a = randu() * 10.0;
b = randu() * 10.0;
v = variance( a, b );
console.log( 'a: %d, b: %d, Var(X;a,b): %d', a.toFixed( 4 ), b.toFixed( 4 ), v.toFixed( 4 ) );
}```
