# cupy.random.laplace¶

cupy.random.laplace(loc=0.0, scale=1.0, size=None, dtype=<class 'float'>)[source]

Laplace distribution.

Returns an array of samples drawn from the laplace distribution. Its probability density function is defined as

$f(x) = \frac{1}{2b}\exp\left(-\frac{|x-\mu|}{b}\right).$
Parameters: loc (float) – The location of the mode $$\mu$$. scale (float) – The scale parameter $$b$$. size (int or tuple of ints) – The shape of the array. If None, a zero-dimensional array is generated. dtype – Data type specifier. Only numpy.float32 and numpy.float64 types are allowed. Samples drawn from the laplace distribution. cupy.ndarray
