Date Mon, 23 Jun 2014 17:19:25 GMT


Venkatesha Murthy TS updated MATH-418:

    Attachment: psquare-23-june.patch

Hi Phil,

Thanks for committing.

A small change however and i have attached the patch against today.
a) the public double quantile() method is a simple getter method which just returns the set
quantile during construction. So its not the result. Basically its the  p/100 value which
is within [0.0-1.0]

b) Next in the test method testDistribution() of the fixed seed
random generator need to be used even in here as well. '
