VoseExtremeRange(Distribution, N)




Array function that simulates the lowest and highest values of a set of N independent observations drawn from a distribution.

  • Distribution - a valid distribution object

  • N - the number of observations drawn from the distribution

Note that this function is not the same as writing VoseSmallest and VoseLargest in separate cells: the values generated by VoseExtremeRange come from the same set of N observations, whereas with VoseSmallest and VoseLargest the generated values would each come from their separate set of observations. The difference becomes clear if you consider low N values: for the extreme case of N=1, VoseExtremeRange will always return two identical values.
