Does anyone know what the arguments alpha and beta in random.betavariate(alpha, beta) are?

Of course, alpha and beta are angles and if I choose them close together, the range of random values ​​is also low. But what geometric meaning do these angles have and how does the system come to the values? Is there any connection with the unit circle?
