Generation of Random Variates


James Huntley (view profile)


generates random variates from over 870 univariate distributions

fstat_pdf(x, r, nmk)
% fstat_pdf.m - evaluates a F-Statistic Probability Density.
%   See "An Exact, Unified Distributional Characterization of
%   Statistics used to Test Linear Hypotheses in Simple Regression

function [pdf] = fstat_pdf(x, r, nmk)

%persistent coef rd2

    rd2 = 0.5 * r;
    coef = (r/nmk)^rd2 / beta(rd2,nmk/2);

pdf = coef .* x.^(rd2-1) ./ (1+r.*x./nmk).^((r+nmk)/2);
