Class HypergeometricDistribution

• Constructor Detail

• HypergeometricDistribution

public HypergeometricDistribution(int populationSize,
int numberOfSuccesses,
int sampleSize)
throws MathIllegalArgumentException
Construct a new hypergeometric distribution with the specified population size, number of successes in the population, and sample size.
Parameters:
populationSize - Population size.
numberOfSuccesses - Number of successes in the population.
sampleSize - Sample size.
Throws:
MathIllegalArgumentException - if numberOfSuccesses < 0.
MathIllegalArgumentException - if populationSize <= 0.
MathIllegalArgumentException - if numberOfSuccesses > populationSize, or sampleSize > populationSize.
• Method Detail

• cumulativeProbability

public double cumulativeProbability(int x)
For a random variable X whose values are distributed according to this distribution, this method returns P(X <= x). In other words, this method represents the (cumulative) distribution function (CDF) for this distribution.
Parameters:
x - the point at which the CDF is evaluated
Returns:
the probability that a random variable with this distribution takes a value less than or equal to x
• getNumberOfSuccesses

public int getNumberOfSuccesses()
Access the number of successes.
Returns:
the number of successes.
• getPopulationSize

public int getPopulationSize()
Access the population size.
Returns:
the population size.
• getSampleSize

public int getSampleSize()
Access the sample size.
Returns:
the sample size.
• probability

public double probability(int x)
For a random variable X whose values are distributed according to this distribution, this method returns P(X = x). In other words, this method represents the probability mass function (PMF) for the distribution.
Parameters:
x - the point at which the PMF is evaluated
Returns:
the value of the probability mass function at x
• logProbability

public double logProbability(int x)
For a random variable X whose values are distributed according to this distribution, this method returns log(P(X = x)), where log is the natural logarithm. In other words, this method represents the logarithm of the probability mass function (PMF) for the distribution. Note that due to the floating point precision and under/overflow issues, this method will for some distributions be more precise and faster than computing the logarithm of IntegerDistribution.probability(int).

The default implementation simply computes the logarithm of probability(x).

Specified by:
logProbability in interface IntegerDistribution
Overrides:
logProbability in class AbstractIntegerDistribution
Parameters:
x - the point at which the PMF is evaluated
Returns:
the logarithm of the value of the probability mass function at x
• upperCumulativeProbability

public double upperCumulativeProbability(int x)
For this distribution, X, this method returns P(X >= x).
Parameters:
x - Value at which the CDF is evaluated.
Returns:
the upper tail CDF for this distribution.
• getNumericalMean

public double getNumericalMean()
Use this method to get the numerical value of the mean of this distribution. For population size N, number of successes m, and sample size n, the mean is n * m / N.
Returns:
the mean or Double.NaN if it is not defined
• getNumericalVariance

public double getNumericalVariance()
Use this method to get the numerical value of the variance of this distribution. For population size N, number of successes m, and sample size n, the variance is [n * m * (N - n) * (N - m)] / [N^2 * (N - 1)].
Returns:
the variance (possibly Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY or Double.NaN if it is not defined)
• getSupportLowerBound

public int getSupportLowerBound()
Access the lower bound of the support. This method must return the same value as inverseCumulativeProbability(0). In other words, this method must return

inf {x in Z | P(X <= x) > 0}.

For population size N, number of successes m, and sample size n, the lower bound of the support is max(0, n + m - N).
Returns:
lower bound of the support
• getSupportUpperBound

public int getSupportUpperBound()
Access the upper bound of the support. This method must return the same value as inverseCumulativeProbability(1). In other words, this method must return

inf {x in R | P(X <= x) = 1}.

For number of successes m and sample size n, the upper bound of the support is min(m, n).
Returns:
upper bound of the support
• isSupportConnected

public boolean isSupportConnected()
Use this method to get information about whether the support is connected, i.e. whether all integers between the lower and upper bound of the support are included in the support. The support of this distribution is connected.
Returns:
true
