[SciPy-user] Generate random samples from a non-standard distribution
Fri Oct 19 01:29:31 CDT 2007
I've been goolging around but not sure how to generate random samples
given the density function of a random variable. I was looking around
something like scipy.stats.rv_continuous but couldn't find anything
Also, if one wants to do Markov Chain Monte Carlo, is scipy possible
and if not, what should be a workaround (if still want to do in
Python). I heard something like openbugs but seems that debian
doesn't have a package.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks!
