Struct rand::distributions::Bernoulli[][src]

pub struct Bernoulli { /* fields omitted */ }
Expand description

The Bernoulli distribution.

This is a special case of the Binomial distribution where n = 1.

Example

use rand::distributions::{Bernoulli, Distribution};

let d = Bernoulli::new(0.3).unwrap();
let v = d.sample(&mut rand::thread_rng());
println!("{} is from a Bernoulli distribution", v);

Precision

This Bernoulli distribution uses 64 bits from the RNG (a u64), so only probabilities that are multiples of 2-64 can be represented.

Implementations

Construct a new Bernoulli with the given probability of success p.

Precision

For p = 1.0, the resulting distribution will always generate true. For p = 0.0, the resulting distribution will always generate false.

This method is accurate for any input p in the range [0, 1] which is a multiple of 2-64. (Note that not all multiples of 2-64 in [0, 1] can be represented as a f64.)

Construct a new Bernoulli with the probability of success of numerator-in-denominator. I.e. new_ratio(2, 3) will return a Bernoulli with a 2-in-3 chance, or about 67%, of returning true.

return true. If numerator == 0 it will always return false. For numerator > denominator and denominator == 0, this returns an error. Otherwise, for numerator == denominator, samples are always true; for numerator == 0 samples are always false.
