Parameters:

endog : array-like

Endogenous response variable

mu : array-like

Fitted mean response variable

scale : float, optional

An optional scale argument

Returns:

deviance : float

The deviance function at (endog,mu) as defined below.

Notes

If a constant term is included it is defined as

deviance = 2*\sum_{i}(Y*\log(Y/\mu))
