Documentation API of the 'cern.jet.random.Binomial' Java class

Class Binomial

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    DoubleFunction, IntFunction, Serializable, Cloneable

    public class Binomialextends AbstractDiscreteDistribution
    Binomial distribution; See the math definition and animated definition.

    p(x) = k * p^k * (1-p)^(n-k) with k = n! / (k! * (n-k)!).

    Instance methods operate on a user supplied uniform random number generator; they are unsynchronized.

    Static methods operate on a default uniform random number generator; they are synchronized.

    Implementation: High performance implementation. Acceptance Rejection/Inversion method. This is a port of RandBinomial used in CLHEP 1.4.0 (C++). CLHEP's implementation is, in turn, based on

    V. Kachitvichyanukul, B.W. Schmeiser (1988): Binomial random variate generation, Communications of the ACM 31, 216-222.
