Original Docstring for Distribution

Initialize a scalar Deterministic distribution.

The atol and rtol parameters allow for some slack in pmf, cdf computations, e.g. due to floating-point error.

pmf(x; loc)
  = 1, if Abs(x - loc) <= atol + rtol * Abs(loc),
  = 0, otherwise.

Args:

  • loc: Numeric Tensor of shape [B1, ..., Bb], with b >= 0. The point (or batch of points) on which this distribution is supported.
  • atol: Non-negative Tensor of same dtype as loc and broadcastable shape. The absolute tolerance for comparing closeness to loc. Default is 0.
  • rtol: Non-negative Tensor of same dtype as loc and broadcastable shape. The relative tolerance for comparing closeness to loc. Default is 0.
  • validate_args: Python bool, default False. When True distribution parameters are checked for validity despite possibly degrading runtime performance. When False invalid inputs may silently render incorrect outputs.
  • allow_nan_stats: Python bool, default True. When True, statistics (e.g., mean, mode, variance) use the value "NaN" to indicate the result is undefined. When False, an exception is raised if one or more of the statistic's batch members are undefined.
  • name: Python str name prefixed to Ops created by this class.
