simionx.Statistics - Statistics utility functions

SYNOPSIS

local Stat = require "simionx.Statistics"

-- Generate table of uniform Gaussian random numbers.
local t = {}
for n=1,10000 do t[#t+1] = Stat.gaussian_rand() end

-- Compute mean and standard deviation.
print("mean", Stat.array_mean(t))   --> "mean   0.011016404779235"
print("stdev", Stat.array_stdev(t)) --> "stdev  0.99160454577423"

-- Generate histogram.
local hist = Stat.make_histogram{data=t, nbins=10}
print(hist)
