# Struct rand::distributions::Bernoulli[−][src]

``pub struct Bernoulli { /* fields omitted */ }``
Expand description

The Bernoulli distribution.

This is a special case of the Binomial distribution where `n = 1`.

# Example

``````use rand::distributions::{Bernoulli, Distribution};

let d = Bernoulli::new(0.3).unwrap();
println!("{} is from a Bernoulli distribution", v);``````

# Precision

This `Bernoulli` distribution uses 64 bits from the RNG (a `u64`), so only probabilities that are multiples of 2-64 can be represented.

## Implementations

Construct a new `Bernoulli` with the given probability of success `p`.

# Precision

For `p = 1.0`, the resulting distribution will always generate true. For `p = 0.0`, the resulting distribution will always generate false.

This method is accurate for any input `p` in the range `[0, 1]` which is a multiple of 2-64. (Note that not all multiples of 2-64 in `[0, 1]` can be represented as a `f64`.)

Construct a new `Bernoulli` with the probability of success of `numerator`-in-`denominator`. I.e. `new_ratio(2, 3)` will return a `Bernoulli` with a 2-in-3 chance, or about 67%, of returning `true`.

return `true`. If `numerator == 0` it will always return `false`. For `numerator > denominator` and `denominator == 0`, this returns an error. Otherwise, for `numerator == denominator`, samples are always true; for `numerator == 0` samples are always false.
