Hello,

In WinBUGS 1.4 manual
(
http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/bugs/winbugs/manual14.pdf), the gamma density is presented as dgamma(r,mu) where r and mu are the shape and rate parameters, respectively. In JAGS (rjags) manual version 1.0.2, May 9, 2008 (http://www-fis.iarc.fr/~martyn/software/jags/jags_user_manual.pdf), on page 26 the gamma density is presented as dgamma(mu,r) instead of dgamma(r,mu). Since JAGS uses the BUGS language, I was wondering if this is a typo or it is in fact different from WinBUGS.

Thanks,
Reza
