Member Function Details

assume

function assume(dist:Distribution<Value>)

Assume a distribution for this random variate. When a value is required, it will be simuldated from this distribution.

assumeDowndate

function assumeDowndate(dist:Distribution<Value>, future:Value)

Assume a distribution for this random variate. When a value is required, it will be assigned according to the future value given here, and trigger a downdate on the delayed sampling graph.

  • dist: The distribution.
  • future: The future value.

assumeUpdate

function assumeUpdate(dist:Distribution<Value>, future:Value)

Assume a distribution for this random variate. When a value is required, it will be assigned according to the future value given here, and trigger an update on the delayed sampling graph.

  • dist: The distribution.
  • future: The future value.

cdf

function cdf(x:Value) -> Real

Evaluate the cumulative distribution function at a value.

  • x: The value.

Return: the cumulative probability

distribution

function distribution() -> Distribution<Value>

Get the distribution.

hasDistribution

function hasDistribution() -> Boolean

Does this have a distribution?

hasValue

function hasValue() -> Boolean

Does this have a value?

lower

function lower() -> Value?

Finite lower bound of the support of this node, if any.

pdf

function pdf(x:Value) -> Real

Evaluate the probability density function (if it exists) at a value.

  • x: The value.

Return: the probability density.

pmf

function pmf(x:Value) -> Real

Evaluate the probability mass function (if it exists) at a value.

  • x: The value.

Return: the probability mass.

upper

function upper() -> Value?

Finite upper bound of the support of this node, if any.

value

function value() -> Value

Get the value of the random variate, forcing realization if necessary.
