Generation of Random Variates


James Huntley


generates random variates from over 870 univariate distributions

shftpar_cdf(x, alpha, mu)
% shftpar_cdf.m - evaluates a Shifted Pareto Cumulative Distribution.
%   See "On Recursive evaluation of Mixed Poisson Probabilities and Related Quantities",

function [cdf] = shftpar_cdf(x, alpha, mu)

cdf = 1 - mu^alpha .* x.^(-alpha);
