LognormalDistribution

warning

The lognormalDistribution object requires that libMesh be configured to utilize an external Boost library. This may be done by using the --with-boost configuration option when compiling libMesh.

Description

The lognormal distribution object defines a lognormal distribution function with the provided location and scale parameters. The location parameter is equal to the median of the underlying normal distribution (equal to , where is the median of the lognormal distribution) and the scale parameter is equal to the standard deviation of the underlying normal distribution. The probability density function (PDF) of the lognormal distribution is given by the Eq. (1).

(1) where is the location parameter and is the scale parameter ().

Example Input Syntax

The following input file defines a lognormal distribution with the location parameter -0.371 and the scale parameter 0.52.
