triangular (truncated)

Distribution triangular(left, right, mode) 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 subsequent try.

For more details see triangular().

triangular(double min, double max, double left, double mode, double right)

Description

Generates a sample of the truncated Triangular 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".

left

double

The minimum x value for triangular distribution.

mode

double

The most likely x value for triangular distribution.

right

double

The maximum x value for triangular distribution.
