# Hyper-class

From distr v1.8
by Peter Ruckdeschel

##### Class "Hyper"

The hypergeometric distribution is used for sampling *without*
replacement. The density of this distribution with parameters
`m`

, `n`

and `k`

(named $Np$, $N-Np$, and
$n$, respectively in the reference below) is given by
$$p(x) = \left. {m \choose x}{n \choose k-x} \right/ {m+n \choose k}$$
for $x = 0, \ldots, k$.

##### Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form `Hyper(m, n, k)`

.
This object is a hypergeometric distribution.

##### Examples

```
H=Hyper(m=3,n=3,k=3) # H is a hypergeometric distribution with m=3,n=3,k=3.
r(H)(1) # one random number generated from this distribution, e.g. 2
d(H)(1) # Density of this distribution is 0.45 for x=1.
p(H)(1) # Probability that x<1 is 0.5.
q(H)(.1) # x=1 is the smallest value x such that p(H)(x)>=0.1.
m(H) # m of this distribution is 3.
m(H)=2 # m of this distribution is now 2.
