Subject [jira] [Created] (MATH-839) In "RealDistribution" implementations, rename method "cumulativeProbability(double,double)" to "probability(double,double)"
Date Sat, 04 Aug 2012 12:25:02 GMT
Gilles created MATH-839:
---------------------------

             Summary: In "RealDistribution" implementations, rename method "cumulativeProbability(double,double)"
to "probability(double,double)"
                 Key: MATH-839
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-839
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: Task
    Affects Versions: 3.0
            Reporter: Gilles
            Assignee: Gilles
            Priority: Trivial
             Fix For: 3.1, 4.0


Cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumulative_distribution_function
Cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Probability_density_function

The method currently named "cumulativeProbability(double,double)" in fact provides the _probability_
of the variable to be within the given interval. The name "probability" would thus be more
accurate (and shorter).
