Data Structures and Simple Algorithms

Part of the In Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 117)

This chapter introduces the data structures necessary to define a discrete random variable in APPL and surveys some simple algorithms associated with discrete random variables. The first section will show that the nature of the support of discrete random variables makes the data structures required much more complicated than for continuous random variables.
