The distribution class is an interface for objects dealing with probability distributions.

Class description for distribution

Subclasses: likelihood

Routines

result = distribution::pdf(x)

Return the probability density function for this distribution, as a function of the variable x

result = distribution::cdf(x)

Return the cumulative distribution funcion P(x' < x) for this distribution.

distribution__define

Define the data structure

Routine details

topdistribution::pdf

statistics

result = distribution::pdf(x)

Return the probability density function for this distribution, as a function of the variable x

Parameters

x in required

The input point. Scalar or array

topdistribution::cdf

statistics

result = distribution::cdf(x)

Return the cumulative distribution funcion P(x' < x) for this distribution.

Return value

The cumulative distribution P(x' < x)

NOTE: The cdf function should only be used for 1-dimensional distribution functions.

Parameters

x in required

The input point. Scalar.
