How to estimate a probability distributionby zli034 (Monk) 
on Sep 01, 2008 at 03:21 UTC ( #708103=perlquestion: print w/ replies, xml )  Need Help?? 
zli034 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi all: A given continuous variable which is not normally distributed, how can I work out the Probability Density Distribution Function? I have been search on this topic for couple weeks. Closest tutorial is on wikipedia about kernel estimation by bayes theorem. That is a diabete study. But I am not sure that if I use the kernel technique the area under the probability curve can be 1. Sum of the probability density is 1, tell me if I got this wrong. So far I treat the density function discrete for simulation I working on to get around the nondeterministic function problem. And I suspect that there is actually no very good techniques to estimate this kind of function; since, all baysian network I saw treat probability density function discrete.
