beta (truncated)

Distribution beta(p, q, 0, 1) is stretched by stretch coefficient, then shifted to the right by shift. After that it is truncated to fit in [min, max] interval. Truncation is performed by discarding every sample outside this interval and taking the subsequent try.

For more details see beta().

beta(double min, double max, double p, double q, double shift, double stretch)

Description

Generates a sample of truncated Beta distribution.

Parameters

Name

Type Description

min

double

The minimum value that this function will return. The distribution is truncated to return values above this. If the sample (stretched and shifted) is below this value, it will be discarded and another sample will be drawn. Use -infinity for "No limit".

max

double

The maximum value that this function will return. The distribution is truncated to return values below this. If the sample (stretched and shifted) is bigger than this value, it will be discarded and another sample will be drawn. Use +infinity for "No limit".

p

double

The lower shape parameter > 0. Also known as alpha parameter.

q

double

The upper shape parameter > 0. Also known as beta parameter.

shift

double

The shift parameter that indicates how much the (stretched) distribution will be shifted to the right.

stretch

double

The stretch parameter that indicates how much the distribution will be stretched.
