Compound demand

The following pattern provides a useful model in many situations. Consider

D = k = 0 N Y k

where Y 0 = 0 , and the class { Y k : 1 k } is iid, independent of the counting random variable N . One natural interpretation is to consider N to be the number of customers in a store and Y k the amount purchased by the k th customer. Then D is the total demand of the actual customers. Hence, we call D the compound demand .

gend.m Uses coefficients of the generating functions for N and Y to calculate, in the integer case, the marginal distribution for the compound demand D and the joint distribution for { N , D } .

gendf.m function [d,pd] = gendf(gn,gy) is a function version of gend , which allows arbitrary naming of the variables. Calculates the distribution for D , but not the joint distribution for { N , D } .
