rdevdict::gsl_binomial

Command: rdevdict::gsl_binomial


Description

This function returns a random integer from the binomial distribution
the number of successes in n independent trials with probability
p. The probability distribution for binomial variates is

p(k) = (n! / k!(n-k)!) p^k (1-p)^(n-k) 0<=k<=n n>0

Please note that the RNG used to initialize gsl_binomial has to be
from the GSL (prefixed gsl_ in rngdict)

Parameters

p - probability of success in a single trial (double)
n - number of trials (positive integer)
