Hi, I would like to define a statistical distribution of my own. I would like to sample from it, as when sampling from one of the standard Mathematica distributions, like RandomInteger[BinomialDistribution[n,p]]. The pdf of my distribution should look like: MyDistribution [j_, p_, n_]:=Binomial[n,(n*j)]*p^(n*j)*(1-p)^(n-n*j) Is that possible? Thanks, Omri.
