Bio::Tools::RandomDistUsertContributed Perl Bio::Tools::RandomDistFunctions(3)

NAME
       Bio::Tools::RandomDistFunctions - A set of routines useful for
       generating random data in different distributions

SYNOPSIS
	 use Bio::Tools::RandomDistFunctions;
	 my $dist = Bio::Tools::RandomDistFunctions->new();
	 for my	$v ( 1..1000 ) {
	   my $birth_dist = $dist->rand_birth_distribution($lambda);
	   # ... do something with the variable
	 }

DESCRIPTION
       Most of the code	is based on the	C implementation of these routines in
       Mike Sanderson's	r8s's package.	See
       http://loco.biosci.arizona.edu/r8s/ for information on his software.

FEEDBACK
   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is	an integral part of the	evolution of this and other
       Bioperl modules.	Send your comments and suggestions preferably to the
       Bioperl mailing list.  Your participation is much appreciated.

	 bioperl-l@bioperl.org			- General discussion
	 http://bioperl.org/wiki/Mailing_lists	- About	the mailing lists

   Support
       Please direct usage questions or	support	issues to the mailing list:

       bioperl-l@bioperl.org

       rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and
       reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address
       it. Please include a thorough description of the	problem	with code and
       data examples if	at all possible.

   Reporting Bugs
       Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track of
       the bugs	and their resolution. Bug reports can be submitted via the
       web:

       Thanks to Mike Sanderson	for assistance in the getting this
       implementation together.

APPENDIX
       The rest	of the documentation details each of the object	methods.
       Internal	methods	are usually preceded with a _

   birth_distribution
	Title	: rand_birth_distribution
	Usage	: my $randvar =	$dist->
		   rand_birth_distribution($lambda);
	Function: Returns a random number from a birth process waiting
		  time with a fixed interval
		  1.0.	Times are measured from	0=present,1=root;
	Returns	: floating point number
	Args	: $lambda ( > 0	)
	References : This is based on code by Mike Sanders in r8s.
		     Ross, Stochastic Processes, p. 145	for the	density

   rand_geometric_distribution
	Title	: rand_geometric_distribution
	Usage	: my $randvar =	$dist->rand_geometric_distribution($param);
	Function: Returns a random geometric variate distributed with
		  parameter $param, according to
		  c.d.f. 1 - ( 1- param) ^ n
	Returns	: integer
	Args	: $param ( 0 > $param <	1 )

   rand_exponentional_distribution
	Title	: rand_exponentional_distribution
	Usage	: my $var = $dist->rand_exponentional_distribution($param);
	Function: Returns a random exponential variate distributed with	parameter
		  $param, according to c.d.f 1 - e^(-param * x)
	Returns	: floating point number
	Args	: $param ( > 0 )

   rand_normal_distribution
	Title	: rand_normal_distribution
	Usage	: my $var = $dist->rand_normal_distribution()
	Function: Returns a random normal (gaussian) variate distributed
	Returns	: floating point number
	Args	: none
