=VoseOptimalFit ({FittedDistributionObjects}, IC,U)



The VoseOptimalFit function returns a random sample from the optimal fitting distribution amongst a set of fitted distributions.

{FittedDistributionObjects} - an array of fitted distribution objects

IC - the information criteria to be used to determine which distribution fits optimal: 1 = AIC, 2 = SIC, 3 = HQIC.

See   Example model



If any of the distributions fitted are invalid, and therefore the relevant VoseDistributionFit function returns an error message, the VoseOptimalFit and related functions will ignore this distribution.

The VoseOptimalFit and related functions will return an error message if all fitted distributions are invalid.
