> In probability theory, a random variable is said to be stable (or to have a stable distribution) if it has the property that a linear combination of two independent copies of the variable has the same distribution, up to location and scale parameters.
As far as I know, the family of stable
distributions is defined by four
parameters: mu, c, alpha and beta. I
need to generate random numbers
according to a given stable
distribution, that is, to a given
choice of the parameters of the stable
distribution family.
How can it be done in SAGE? Is there some "statistical package" which provides this?
