The toolbox includes:
1. fast random number generators from the truncated univariate and multivariate student/normal distributions;
2. (Quasi-) Monte Carlo estimator of the cumulative distribution function of the multivariate student/normal;
3. accurate computation of the quantile function of the normal distribution in the extremes of its tails.

Thanks for your sampling method and it really helped me a lot, but when I tried the scalar case, error always occurred saying that
Inner matrix dimensions must agree.
Error in cholperm (line 20)
Could you please take a look at it?
What can I do to sample from a truncated multivariate Gaussian with non-zero mean when the number of inequality constraints is greater than the dimensionality of the random vector (matrix A is not squared)?
Thanks for sharing. Best regards
Thanks for making this toolbox available!
- toolbox can now deal with multivariate truncated Student's t-distribution
