# Nakagami Distribution

Fit, evaluate, and generate random samples from Nakagami distribution

Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ offers multiple ways to work with the Nakagami distribution.

• Create a `NakagamiDistribution` object and use `NakagamiDistribution` object functions.

• Use the generic distribution functions with the specified distribution name `"Nakagami"` and corresponding parameters.

To learn about the Nakagami distribution, see Nakagami Distribution.
