Generation of Random Variates


James Huntley


generates random variates from over 870 univariate distributions

chi_pdf(x, nu)
% chi_pdf.m - evaluates the Chi Probability Density Function.

function [pdf] = chi_pdf(x, nu)

%persistent coef

    coef = 2^(1-0.5*nu);

pdf = coef * exp(-0.5*x^2) * x^(nu-1);
