Cumulative Distribution Function

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

Laplace distribution cumulative distribution function.

The cumulative distribution function for a Laplace random variable is

Cumulative distribution function for a Laplace distribution.

where mu is the location parameter and b > 0 is the scale parameter.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/stats-base-dists-laplace-cdf

Usage

var cdf = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-laplace-cdf' );

cdf( x, mu, b )

Evaluates the cumulative distribution function (CDF) for a Laplace distribution with parameters mu (location parameter) and b > 0 (scale parameter).

var y = cdf( 2.0, 0.0, 1.0 ); // returns ~0.932 y = cdf( 5.0, 10.0, 3.0 ); // returns ~0.094

If provided NaN as any argument, the function returns NaN.

var y = cdf( NaN, 0.0, 1.0 ); // returns NaN y = cdf( 0.0, NaN, 1.0 ); // returns NaN y = cdf( 0.0, 0.0, NaN ); // returns NaN

If provided b <= 0, the function returns NaN.

var y = cdf( 2.0, 0.0, -1.0 ); // returns NaN y = cdf( 2.0, 0.0, 0.0 ); // returns NaN

cdf.factory( mu, b )

Returns a function for evaluating the cumulative distribution function of a Laplace distribution with parameters mu (location parameter) and b > 0 (scale parameter).

var mycdf = cdf.factory( 3.0, 1.5 ); var y = mycdf( 1.0 ); // returns ~0.132 y = mycdf( 4.0 ); // returns ~0.743

Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' ); var cdf = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-dists-laplace-cdf' ); var mu; var b; var x; var y; var i; for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) { x = randu() * 10.0; mu = randu() * 10.0; b = randu() * 10.0; y = cdf( x, mu, b ); console.log( 'x: %d, µ: %d, b: %d, F(x;µ,b): %d', x.toFixed( 4 ), mu.toFixed( 4 ), b.toFixed( 4 ), y.toFixed( 4 ) ); }
