unifcdf

Continuous uniform cumulative distribution function

Syntax

p = unifcdf(x,a,b)
p = unifcdf(x,a,b,'upper')

Description

p = unifcdf(x,a,b) returns the uniform cdf at each value in x using the corresponding lower endpoint (minimum), a and upper endpoint (maximum), b. x, a, and b can be vectors, matrices, or multidimensional arrays that all have the same size. A scalar input is expanded to a constant matrix with the same dimensions as the other inputs.

p = unifcdf(x,a,b,'upper') returns the complement of the uniform cdf at each value in x, using an algorithm that more accurately computes the extreme upper tail probabilities.

The uniform cdf is

p=F(x|a,b)=xabaI[a,b](x)

The standard uniform distribution has a = 0 and b = 1.

Examples

collapse all

What is the probability that an observation from a standard uniform distribution will be less than 0.75?

probability = unifcdf(0.75)
probability =
  0.7500

What is the probability that an observation from a uniform distribution with a = -1 and b = 1 will be less than 0.75?

probability = unifcdf(0.75,-1,1)
probability =
  0.8750
