Builds a variational distribution from a location-scale family.

initial_loc Float Tensor initial location.
initial_scale Float Tensor initial scale.
event_ndims Integer Tensor number of event dimensions in initial_loc.
distribution_fn Optional constructor for a tfd.Distribution instance in a location-scale family. This should have signature dist = distribution_fn(loc, scale, validate_args). Default value: tfd.Normal.
validate_args Python bool. Whether to validate input with asserts. This imposes a runtime cost. If validate_args is False, and the inputs are invalid, correct behavior is not guaranteed. Default value: False.
name Python str name prefixed to ops created by this function. Default value: None (i.e., 'build_trainable_location_scale_distribution').

posterior_dist A tfd.Distribution instance.
