## Protected Attributes | |

const pdf1d_pdf * | pdf_model_ |

Base class for Univariate Random Sampler classes.

This is really a random number generator whose outputs have the PDF of the relevant pdf1d_pdf. Sampler objects should only exist as long as their pdf object, and are not meant to be persistent.

void pdf1d_sampler::regular_samples | ( | vnl_vector< double > & | x | ) | ` [virtual]` |

Fill x with samples possibly chosen so as to represent the distribution.

Generate a set of pseudo-random samples, chosen so as to be suitable to represent the distribution. This is meant to be used for estimating continuous integrals with sampled approximations. Where there are multiple peaks (e.g. kernel or mixture models), it is preferred that the number of samples from each component is roughly proportional to the weight for the component. When small numbers are requested, this can be done explicitly. The default is simply to call sample() for each element of x

By default simply randomly sample from distribution
