- The inverse transform technique can be used to sample from exponential, the uniform, the Weibull and the triangle distributions.
- The basic principle is to find the inverse function of F, such that .
- denotes the solution of the equation in terms
of
*r*, not . For example, the inverse of y = x is x = y, the inverse of y = 2 x + 1 is x = (y-1)/2 ...
