interval_probabilities


Assign probability mass to each interval

Specification

Alias: interval_probs iuv_interval_probs

Argument(s): REALLIST

Default: Equal probability assignments for each interval (1/num_intervals[i])

Description

The basic probability assignments for each interval variable must sum to one. For example, if an interval variable is defined with three intervals, the probabilities for these intervals could be 0.2, 0.5, and 0.3 which sum to one, but could not be 0.5,0.5, and 0.5 which do not sum to one.
