Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-460) Levy Distribution
Date Mon, 30 Apr 2012 00:30:48 GMT


Andrew Waterman commented on MATH-460:

I've been able to sample what looks to be a proper a Levy Distribution using the T-Distribution
(student's) in R with the following code:

> N<- 100
> distribution-vector<- rt(N,df=2)
[modified from]

When graphed as an XY, I'm able to plot what looks to be a "Levy Flight" (see citation for
details) as used in ecological modeling. This could serve as the basis to implement the mathematical
expectations for the missing unit tests.
