# chi2stat

Chi-square mean and variance

## Syntax

[M,V] = chi2stat(NU)

## Description

[M,V] = chi2stat(NU) returns the mean of and variance for the chi-square distribution with degrees of freedom parameters specified by NU.

The mean of the chi-square distribution is ν, the degrees of freedom parameter, and the variance is 2ν.

## Examples

```nu = 1:10;
nu = nu'*nu;
[m,v] = chi2stat(nu)
