rdevdict::gsl_binomial


Name:
rdevdict::gsl_binomial - GSL binomial random deviate generator
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)

Require:
HAVE_GSL
