Subject [jira] Closed: (MATH-295) RandomDataImpl.nextPoisson fails for means in range 6.0 - 19.99
Date Fri, 11 Sep 2009 17:44:57 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-295?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jason McFall closed MATH-295.
-----------------------------

    Resolution: Fixed

Sorry, duplicate of Math 294 (got a 'server down for maintenance' error message when raising
294 but obviously it did get stored)

> RandomDataImpl.nextPoission(double mean) fails frequently (but not every time) from calls
with mean >= 6.0 and < 20.0
> Below 6.0 and above 20 it seems fine, as far as I can tell by testing values at random.
> When it fails, the exception is as follows  - this from calling nextPoisson(6.0)
> org.apache.commons.math.MathRuntimeException$4: must have n >= 0 for n!, got n = -2
> 	at org.apache.commons.math.MathRuntimeException.createIllegalArgumentException(MathRuntimeException.java:282)
> 	at org.apache.commons.math.util.MathUtils.factorialLog(MathUtils.java:561)
> 	at org.apache.commons.math.random.RandomDataImpl.nextPoisson(RandomDataImpl.java:434)
> ie it's calling MathUtils.factorialLog with a negative argument.
