UniformDistribution

UniformDistribution[min, max] gives the uniform distribution on the interval {min, max).

• The uniform distribution, UniformDistribution[min, max], commonly referred to as the rectangular distribution, characterizes a random variable whose value is everywhere equally likely. An example of a uniformly distributed random variable is the location of a point chosen randomly on a line from min to max. If x is uniformly distributed on [a, b], then the random variable x follows a Cauchy distribution CauchyDistribution[a, b].

Using InstantCalculators

Here are the InstantCalculators for the UniformDistribution function. Enter the parameters for your calculation and click Calculate to see the result.

This generates a set of random numbers that follow the uniform distribution.

This gives the probability density function for the uniform distribution.

This gives the cumulative distribution function for the uniform distribution.
