Generation of Random Variates


James Huntley (view profile)


generates random variates from over 870 univariate distributions

invfact_cdf(n, nn, c)
% invfact_cdf.m - evaluates an Inverse Factorial Cumulative Distribution.

function [cdf] = invfact_cdf(n, nn, c)

sum1 = invfact_pdf(0, nn, c);
for jn = 1:n
    sum1 = sum1 + invfact_pdf(jn, nn, c);
cdf = sum1;
