Generation of Random Variates


James Huntley (view profile)


generates random variates from over 870 univariate distributions

qpascal_pdf(n, nn, q, theta)
% qpascal_pdf.m - evaluates a q-Pascal Probability Density.

function [pdf] = qpascal_pdf(n, nn, q, theta)

qcoef = qbinomial_coef(n-1, nn-1, q);
prod = 1;
for jn = 1:nn
    prod = prod * (1 - theta*q^(jn-1));
pdf = qcoef * theta^(n-nn) * prod;
