Examples and How To

Fit a Nonparametric Distribution with Pareto Tails

This example shows how to fit a nonparametric probability distribution to sample data using Pareto tails to smooth the distribution in the tails.

Concepts

Piecewise Linear Distribution

The piecewise linear distribution creates a nonparametric representation of the cumulative distribution function (cdf) by linearly connecting the known cdf values from the sample data.

Nonparametric and Empirical Probability Distributions

Estimate a probability density function or a cumulative distribution function from sample data.
