prob.TriangularDistribution class

Package: prob
Superclasses: prob.ParametricTruncatableDistribution

Triangular probability distribution object

Description

`prob.TriangularDistribution` is an object consisting of parameters and a model description for a triangular probability distribution. Create a probability distribution object with specified parameters using `makedist`.

Construction

`pd = makedist('Triangular')` creates a triangular probability distribution object using the default parameter values.

`pd = makedist('Triangular','a',a,'b',b,'c',c)` creates a triangular distribution object using the specified parameter values.

Input Arguments

expand all

Lower limit for the triangular distribution, specified as a scalar value.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Peak location for the triangular distribution, specified as a scalar value greater than or equal to `a`.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Upper limit for the triangular distribution, specified as a scalar value greater than or equal to `b`.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Properties

expand all

Lower limit for the triangular distribution, stored as a scalar value.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Location of the peak for the triangular distribution, stored as a scalar value greater than or equal to `a`.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Upper limit for the triangular distribution, stored as a scalar value greater than or equal to `b`.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Probability distribution name, stored as a character vector. This property is read-only.

Data Types: `char`

Logical flag for truncated distribution, stored as a logical value. If `IsTruncated` equals `0`, the distribution is not truncated. If `IsTruncated` equals `1`, the distribution is truncated. This property is read-only.

Data Types: `logical`

Number of parameters for the probability distribution, stored as a positive integer value. This property is read-only.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Distribution parameter descriptions, stored as a cell array of character vectors. Each cell contains a short description of one distribution parameter. This property is read-only.

Data Types: `char`

Distribution parameter names, stored as a cell array of character vectors. This property is read-only.

Data Types: `char`

Distribution parameter values, stored as a vector. This property is read-only.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Truncation interval for the probability distribution, stored as a vector containing the lower and upper truncation boundaries. This property is read-only.

Data Types: `single` | `double`

Examples

Create a triangular distribution object using the default parameter values.

```pd = makedist('Triangular') ```
```pd = TriangularDistribution A = 0, B = 0.5, C = 1 ```

Create a triangular distribution object by specifying parameter values.

```pd = makedist('Triangular', 'a',-2,'b',1,'c',5) ```
```pd = TriangularDistribution A = -2, B = 1, C = 5 ```

Compute the mean of the distribution.

`m = mean(pd)`
`m =`
` 1.3333`
