Generation of Random Variates


James Huntley (view profile)


generates random variates from over 870 univariate distributions

% expinvgaus_cdf.m - compute an Exponential Inverse Gaussian Cumulative Distribution Function.
%   See "Modelling Losses Using an Exponential Inverse Gaussian Distribution",
