January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Benktander Weibull distribution may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "<>"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • parameters =<math>a>0</math> ([[real number|real]])<br/><math>0<b<=1</math> ([[real number|real]]) |
  • support ={{nowrap|''x'' ∈ [1, ∞)}} |

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 02:11, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Hey! I am trying to implement the cumulative distribution function of the noncentral t according to specification currently on the article. I amended the form of the first version when x < 0, as Ftilde() is insensitive to the sign of x (because it only enters through a squared term). The first form only seems to work when both x and μ are both positive or both negative (at least, when compared to the pt() function in R)... that might be a problem with my coding, but I've been going over my attempted implementation with a fine toothed comb for two days now. Anywho, your insights welcome.Lexy-lou (talk) 22:03, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Raised cosine distribution[edit]

Hello, I'm puzzled by your edit. Could you explain the connection between the differential equation and the raised cosine distribution in the article? I suspect the pdf of that distribution is a solution to the differential equation, but where does the differential equation come from? -- UKoch (talk) 20:04, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Ukoch, it was found through Mathematica's DifferentialRootReduce function [1] -- BeyondNormality (talk) 20:42, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

OK. I changed the format of the section and added a short explanation, but I think what's still missing is a better connection between the differential equation and the raised cosine distribution. I would have expected the equation to stem from some "real-world" problem or application, which would probably make more sense to the reader. As it is, the section still looks like "I looked for a differential equation whose solution is the pdf of this distribution, and here it is." -- UKoch (talk) 20:18, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Fisher's noncentral hypergeometric distribution[edit]

Hello BeyondNormality, in Fisher's noncentral hypergeometric distribution I tried to fix the formatting of the formulas, but I'm not sure the outcome is correct. Could you have a look? Thanks! -- UKoch (talk) 20:52, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Looks correct. Thanks for reformatting. BeyondNormality (talk) 23:41, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
