I would like to know if it is possible to use Matlab for very small numbers (smaller than 10^-308 ). It's very important for my application "statistical genetics". in this field, somes probabilities are smaller than 10^-500.
No products are associated with this question.
Quite often in statistics when one has very small probabilities, one works on the log scale. That's why one typically maximizes the LOG-likelihood, and not the likelihood.
