Dear list,
I am looking for some of the functionality provided by the GNU
Scientific Library histogram module (http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/manual/html_node/Histograms.html
).
In particular, a need to be able to create a probability density
function from my histogram of data. This will allow inverse look-ups
to be performed, i.e. for a random number (0-->1) find the associated
probability (http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/manual/html_node/The-histogram-probability-distribution-struct.html
). This allows the distribution and for samples to be returned
weighted by the probability of the distribution -- which is a common
task!
Is is easier just to call GSL using C-types? I just wanted to check
that this functionality doesn't already exist before I stray too far,
or implement it my self.
Best regards
Dan
