Poisson Binomial Distribution

Posted on: February 17th, 2016 by chuchosay

An IDL routine to calculate the probability distribution of a Poisson binomial distribution, i.e. a binomial distribution in which each try has an independent probability of success. This is a generalization of the standard binomial distribution, which assumes all tries have equal probability of success. Simply provide a vector of independent probabilities.
