Quantile functions for bounded distributions

dquant.m function t = dquant(X,PX,U) determines the values of the quantile function for a simple random variable with distribution X , P X at the probability values in row vector U . The probability vector U is often determined by a random number generator.

dsample.m Calculates a sample from a discrete distribution, determines the relative frequencies of values, and compares with actual probabilities. Input consists of value andprobability matrices for X and the sample size n . A matrix U is determined by a random number generator, and the m-function dquant is used to calculate the corresponding sample values. Variousdata on the sample are calculated and displayed.

quanplot.m Plots the quantile function for a distribution function F X . Assumes the procedure dfsetup or acsetup has been run. A suitable set U of probability values is determined and the m-function dquant is used to determine corresponding values of the quantile function. The results are plotted.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
