Subject [jira] Resolved: (MATH-354) compiler dependency in RandomDataImpl.getPoisson(double mean)
Date Thu, 18 Mar 2010 22:34:27 GMT


Phil Steitz resolved MATH-354.

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 2.1

The method has been rewritten in version 2.1.  The current version no longer includes the
compiler-dependent code referenced in this issue.

> Hi,
> in RandomDataImpl.getPoisson(double mean) I got the following problem in the case mean>=
> in the branch if (u <= c1):
> if (x < -mu)
>     w = Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY;
> implicits that (int) (mu+ x) < 0
> I found that for some compiler/run-time environments the subsequent update of the "accept"
value then fails, as by the right hand side of the comparison leads to an Exception in MathUtils.factorialLog((int)
(mu + x)). Some compiler/jre combinations, however, skip evaluating the right side as by isInfinity(w).
> To ensure stability, I currently worked around by an explicit if(Double.isInfinity(w))
branch, however, I would like to ask whether there is a more elegant way to ensure general
functionality of that method.
> Thank you, micha.
