TUnuranDiscrDist Class Reference

TUnuranDiscrDist class for one dimensional discrete distribution.

It is used by TUnuran to generate integer random numbers according to this distribution via TUnuran::SampleDiscr().

The class can be constructed from a one-dimensional function (TF1 pointer) representing the discrete distribution (probability mesh function) (for example a TF1("f","TMath::PoissonI(x,[0])") ) or from a vector of probability, used by passing an iterator specifying the begin and the end of the vector. In the latter case the domain of the distribution will be defined by the vector, while in the first case is by default (0,+inf). a Method to set the domain of the distribution ( SetDomain ) is provided and it defines the range of the generated random numbers.

The derivatives of the pdf which are used by some UNURAN methods are estimated numerically in the Derivative() method. Some extra information (like distribution mode, cdf function, probability sum, etc..) can be set as well otherwise will be estimated internally if required.
