I'd greatly appreciate some help at finding an algorithm (not a math
package) to sample the
generalized Gamma function defined at the following web site everywhere
in its domain [0, infinity)
http://www.weibull.com/LifeDataWeb/generalized_gamma_probability_density_function.htm
I'd just be happy with an algorithm to sample a particular realization
of
the generalized Gamma function obtained by setting:
Beta = 2
K = 2
Theta = sqrt(2)*V0)
which generates a Maxwell distribution: t^3/(2*V0^4)*Exp[-t^2/(2*V0^2)]
The GSL realization of the Gamma deviate is only for the canonical Gamma
function (2 parameters)
Thank you very much,
Maura
