9 Probability Distributions

Neil Toronto <[email protected]>

 (require math/distributions) package: math-lib

The math/distributions module exports the following:
  1. Distribution objects, which represent probability distributions

  2. Functions that operate on distribution objects

  3. The low-level flonum functions used to define distribution objects

Performance Warning: Using distribution objects in untyped Racket is currently 25-50 times slower than using them in Typed Racket, due to the overhead of checking higher-order contracts. We are working on it.

For now, if you need speed, either use the typed/racket language, or use just the low-level flonum functions, which are documented in Low-Level Distribution Functions.
