Support property

Class: ProbDist

Read-only structure containing information about support of ProbDist object

Description

Support is a read-only property of the ProbDist class. Support is a structure containing information about the support of a ProbDist object. It includes the following fields:

  • range

  • closedbound

  • iscontinuous

Values

The values for the three fields in the structure are:

  • range — A two-element vector [L, U], such that all of the probability is contained from L to U.

  • closedbound — A two-element logical vector indicating whether the corresponding range endpoint is included. Possible values for each endpoint are 1 (true) or 0 (false).

  • iscontinuous — A logical value indicates if the distribution takes values on the entire interval from L to U (true), or if it takes only integer values within this range (false). Possible values are 1 (true) or 0 (false).

Use this information to view and compare information about the support of distributions.
