Example model

This function returns the smallest value from n generated values from a certain distribution. It is the same function as the VoseKthSmallest function where k = 1.

This function, that can be seen as a distribution, has an optional U-parameter.

  • Distribution - a valid distribution object

  • n - the number of samples taken from the distribution

  • U - optional parameter specifying the cumulative percentile of the "smallest value" distribution. If omitted the function just returns the smallest value.

Also see the Vose Extreme Values window for an explanation about the window for this function.
