Constructor and Description 

UniformRealDistribution()
Create a standard uniform real distribution with lower bound (inclusive)
equal to zero and upper bound (exclusive) equal to one.

UniformRealDistribution(double lower,
double upper)
Create a uniform real distribution using the given lower and upper
bounds.

UniformRealDistribution(double lower,
double upper,
double inverseCumAccuracy)
Create a normal distribution using the given mean, standard deviation and
inverse cumulative distribution accuracy.

Modifier and Type  Method and Description 

double 
cumulativeProbability(double x)
For a random variable
X whose values are distributed according
to this distribution, this method returns P(X <= x) . 
double 
density(double x)
Returns the probability density function (PDF) of this distribution
evaluated at the specified point
x . 
double 
getNumericalMean()
Use this method to get the numerical value of the mean of this
distribution.

double 
getNumericalVariance()
Use this method to get the numerical value of the variance of this
distribution.

protected double 
getSolverAbsoluteAccuracy()
Returns the solver absolute accuracy for inverse cumulative computation.

double 
getSupportLowerBound()
Access the lower bound of the support.

double 
getSupportUpperBound()
Access the upper bound of the support.

boolean 
isSupportConnected()
Use this method to get information about whether the support is connected,
i.e.

boolean 
isSupportLowerBoundInclusive()
Use this method to get information about whether the lower bound
of the support is inclusive or not.

boolean 
isSupportUpperBoundInclusive()
Use this method to get information about whether the upper bound
of the support is inclusive or not.

double 
probability(double x)
For a random variable
X whose values are distributed according
to this distribution, this method returns P(X = x) . 
double 
sample()
Generate a random value sampled from this distribution.

whose values are distributed according
to this distribution, this method returns P(X = x)

words, this method represents the probability mass function (PMF)
for the distribution.

difference quotient.x
