Create a maximum distributionΒΆ

In this basic example we are going to build the distribution of the maximum of independent distributions.

In [52]:
from __future__ import print_function
import openturns as ot
In [53]:
# create a collection of distribution
distribution1 = ot.Normal()
distribution2 = ot.Uniform(-1.0, 2.0)
distColl = [distribution1, distribution2]
In [54]:
# create the distribution
distribution = ot.MaximumDistribution(distColl)
print(distribution)
MaximumDistribution(ComposedDistribution(Normal(mu = 0, sigma = 1), Uniform(a = -1, b = 2), IndependentCopula(dimension = 2)))
In [55]:
# draw PDF
distribution.drawPDF()
