Generation of Random Variates


James Huntley


generates random variates from over 870 univariate distributions

genlogis_cdf(x, rho, mu, phi, theta)
% apd_cdf.m - compute Generalized Logistic Cumulative Distribution Function.
%   See "Continuous Univariate Distributions", Vol.2, Johnson, Kotz, and Balakrishnan,   
%   J. Wiley, 1995, p.85.
%       Vector form of CDF!!!
%  Created by Jim Huntley,  10/27/08

function [cdf] = genlogis_cdf(x, rho, mu, phi, theta)

tol = 1e-8;
trace = [];
