Generation of Random Variates



generates random variates from over 870 univariate distributions

parlognor_cdf(x,alpha, bet, nu, tau)
% parlognor_cdf.m - compute Double Pareto Lognormal Cumulative Distribution Function.
%   See "The Double Pareto-Lognormal Distribution - A New Parameteric Model for Size Distributions", 
%   W. J. Reed and M. Jorgensen, U. Victoria. 
%   NOTE:  The CDF in this reference does not correspond to the PDF.  In fact, it can yield negative
%   values for small values of 'x'.  PDF appears to be correct and normalized.  So use numerical 
%   integration to get CDF.
