# Create a truncated distributionΒΆ

In this example we are going to define truncated distributions.

It is possible to truncate a distribution in its lower area, or its upper area or in both lower and upper areas.

In 1-d, assuming a and b bounds, its probability density function is defined as:

Is is also possible to truncate a multivariate distribution.

distribution.drawPDF()

truncated = ot.TruncatedDistribution(distribution, 0.2, ot.TruncatedDistribution.LOWER)

truncated = ot.TruncatedDistribution(distribution, 1.5, ot.TruncatedDistribution.UPPER)
truncated.drawPDF()

# truncated on both bounds
truncated = ot.TruncatedDistribution(distribution, 0.2, 1.5)
truncated.drawPDF()

sample = ot.Normal(dimension).getSample(size)
ks = ot.KernelSmoothing().build(sample)

# Truncate it between (-2;2)^n
bounds = ot.Interval([-2.0] * dimension, [2.0] * dimension)

# Draw its PDF
graph = truncatedKS.drawPDF([-2.5] * dimension, [2.5] * dimension, [256] * dimension)
