Original Docstring for Distribution

Construct Gamma with concentration and rate parameters.

The parameters concentration and rate must be shaped in a way that supports broadcasting (e.g. concentration + rate is a valid operation).

concentration Floating point tensor, the concentration params of the distribution(s). Must contain only positive values.
rate Floating point tensor, the inverse scale params of the distribution(s). Must contain only positive values.
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.

TypeError if concentration and rate are different dtypes.
