# InterpolatedPDFs.jl

Simple extension of Distributions.jl providing support for interpolated pdfs. Currently only one type is implemented

``````LinearInterpolatedPDF{T,1,ITP,IT} <: ContinuousUnivariateDistribution
``````

A continuous univariate linearly interpolated distribution. The pdf, cdf, and inverse cdf are interpolated using Interpolations.jl.

# Examples

The easiest way to create a distribution is to use `fit_cpl`

``````julia> x = range(0,pi/2,length=10)
0.0:0.17453292519943295:1.5707963267948966

julia> s = acos.(rand(1000));

julia> d = fit_cpl(x,s)
LinearInterpolatedPDF{Float64,1,Interpolations.ScaledInterpolation{Float64,1,Interpolations.BSplineInterpolation{Float64,1,Array{Float64,1},Interpolations.BSpline{Interpolations.Linear},Tuple{Base.OneTo{Int64}}},Interpolations.BSpline{Interpolations.Linear},Tuple{StepRangeLen{Float64,Base.TwicePrecision{Float64},Base.TwicePrecision{Float64}}}},Interpolations.BSpline{Interpolations.Linear}}(

After fitting the distribution you can do useful things like

``````julia> pdf(d,1)
0.7933936499734955

julia> cdf(d,0.5)
0.12951248575312788

julia> quantile(d,0.9)
1.4736110218924767

julia> rand(d,10)
