[jira] [Updated] (MATH-968) Pareto distribution is missing

Phil Steitz (Jira)

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-968?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Thomas Neidhart updated MATH-968:

    Attachment: MATH-968.zip

Please find attached a patch that add support for the Pareto distribution.

The test values have been created with R (cran modules VGAM contains a pareto distribution), although there seems to be a small bug in the module as the density for x == scale/k is returned as 0.

Looking at the wikipedia page or wolfram (http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/ParetoDistribution.html) you can see that for this case the density should be <> 0. So I adapted the test values for this case.

> Seems that org.apache.commons.math3.distribution lacks a ParetoDistribution for some reason. This is a real common type of distribution, so providing it would be very nice!
