StepUniform distribution

Format: StepUniform(min, max, step)



The StepUniform distribution returns values between the min and max at the defined step increments. If the step value is omitted the function assumes a default value of 1.

The StepUniform function is generally used as a tool to sample in a controlled way along some dimension (e.g. time, distance, x) and can be used to perform simple one-dimensional numerical integrations.

StepUniform(A,B) where A,B are integers will generate a random integer variable that can be used as an index variable as an efficiently way to randomly select paired data from a database.

VoseStepUniform VoseDiscreteFit generates random values from this distribution for Monte Carlo simulation, or calculates a percentile if used with a U parameter.

VoseStepUniformObject constructs a distribution object for this distribution.

VoseStepUniformProb returns the probability mass or cumulative distribution function for this distribution.

VoseStepUniformProb10 returns the log10 of the probability mass or cumulative distribution function.
