## DESCRIPTION

```% -*- texinfo -*-
% @deftypefn {Function File} {[@var{m}, @var{v}] =} gamstat (@var{a}, @var{b})
% Compute mean and variance of the gamma distribution.
%
%
% @itemize @bullet
% @item
% @var{a} is the first parameter of the gamma distribution. @var{a} must be
% positive
%
% @item
% @var{b} is the second parameter of the gamma distribution. @var{b} must be
% positive
% @end itemize
% @var{a} and @var{b} must be of common size or one of them must be scalar
%
%
% @itemize @bullet
% @item
% @var{m} is the mean of the gamma distribution
