# variance

Evaluates the variance of the Bradford distribution PDF.
Controller: CodeCogs Contents  C++

## Variance

 doublevariance( double a double b double c )[inline]
This function evaluates the variance of the Bradford distribution PDF with given arguments, defined by

where

In the example that follows, the variance is evaluated using values of the third parameter from 0.1 up to 0.8 with a step equal to 0.1, while the other two parameters have fixed values, 0 and 1. The maximum number of precision digits, implicitly set to 17, may be changed through the <em> PRECISION </em> define.

### Example 1

#include <codecogs/statistics/distributions/continuous/bradford/variance.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>

#define PRECISION 17

int main()
{
std::cout << "The variance of the Bradford distribution PDF with";
std::cout << std::endl << "a = 0, b = 1 and " << std::endl;
std::cout << "c = {0.1, 0.2, ... , 0.7, 0.8} is" << std::endl;
std::cout << std::endl;
for (double c = 0.1; c < 0.81; c += 0.1)
{
std::cout << std::setprecision(1);
std::cout << "c = " << std::setw(3) << c << " : ";
std::cout << std::setprecision(PRECISION);
std::cout << std::endl;
}
return 0;
}

### Output

The variance of the Bradford distribution PDF with
a = 0, b = 1 and
c = {0.1, 0.2, ... , 0.7, 0.8} is

c = 0.1 : 0.083320719352760711
c = 0.2 : 0.083287201579144057
c = 0.3 : 0.0832378855758278
c = 0.4 : 0.083176514926087283
c = 0.5 : 0.083105887411104279
c = 0.6 : 0.083028127878180272
c = 0.7 : 0.082944872326977309
c = 0.8 : 0.082857395191116151
