ProbDistUnivParam class

Superclasses: ProbDistParametric

Object representing univariate parametric probability distribution


ProbDistUnivParam will be removed in a future release. To create and fit probability distribution objects, use makedist and fitdist instead.


A ProbDistUnivParam object represents a univariate parametric probability distribution. You create this object by using the constructor (ProbDistUnivParam) and supplying parameter values.


ProbDistUnivParamConstruct ProbDistUnivParam object


cdfReturn cumulative distribution function (CDF) for ProbDist object
icdfReturn inverse cumulative distribution function (ICDF) for ProbDistUnivParam object
iqrReturn interquartile range (IQR) for ProbDistUnivParam object
meanReturn mean of ProbDistUnivParam object
medianReturn median of ProbDistUnivParam object
paramciReturn parameter confidence intervals of ProbDistUnivParam object
pdfReturn probability density function (PDF) for ProbDist object
randomGenerate random number drawn from ProbDist object
stdReturn standard deviation of ProbDistUnivParam object
varReturn variance of ProbDistUnivParam object


DistNameRead-only probability distribution name of ProbDist object
InputDataRead-only structure containing information about input data to ProbDist object
NLogLRead-only value specifying negative log likelihood for input data to ProbDistParametric object
NumParamsRead-only value specifying number of parameters of ProbDistParametric object
ParamCovRead-only covariance matrix of parameter estimates of ProbDistParametric object
ParamDescriptionRead-only cell array specifying descriptions of parameters of ProbDistParametric object
ParamIsFixedRead-only logical array specifying fixed parameters of ProbDistParametric object
ParamNamesRead-only cell array specifying names of parameters of ProbDistParametric object
ParamsRead-only array specifying values of parameters of ProbDistParametric object
SupportRead-only structure containing information about support of ProbDist object

    Note:   Parameter values are also properties. For example, if you create PD, a univariate parametric probability distribution object that represents a normal distribution, then and PD.sigma are properties that give the values of the mu and sigma parameters.
