If not, Is there some mathematic function to calculate integration(detail: 1-dimension, interval 0 to 1)?

Can you give more details on your question?
You need to evaluate random numbers with a certain PDF?

 July 3, 2009, 04:44 #3 New Member   Jiayuan Jin Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 9 Thanks! Here it is: I need to calculate PDF such like fai(f)=(f^(v-1))*((1-f)^(w-1))/B(v,w), where B(v,w)=Integration of x from 0 to 1: {(x^(v-1))*((1-x)^(w-1))*dx}, v and w already known.

 July 3, 2009, 07:25 #5 New Member   Jiayuan Jin Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 9 about calculate the fluctuation of specie's concentration. Does someone know how to call the integration function or about this? waiting online.
