# The mwc-probability package

A simple probability distribution type, where distributions are characterized by sampling functions.

This implementation is a thin layer over `mwc-random`

, which handles RNG
state-passing automatically by using a `PrimMonad`

like `IO`

or `ST s`

under
the hood.

*Examples*

Transform a distribution's support while leaving its density structure invariant:

-- uniform over [0, 1] to uniform over [1, 2] succ <$> uniform

Sequence distributions together using bind:

-- a beta-binomial conjugate distribution beta 1 10 >>= binomial 10

Use do-notation to build complex joint distributions from composable, local conditionals:

hierarchicalModel = do [c, d, e, f] <- replicateM 4 $ uniformR (1, 10) a <- gamma c d b <- gamma e f p <- beta a b n <- uniformR (5, 10) binomial n p
