# BinomialFunction class¶

(Shortest import: from brian2 import BinomialFunction)

class brian2.input.binomial.BinomialFunction(n, p, approximate=True, name='_binomial*')[source]

A function that generates samples from a binomial distribution.

Parameters

n : int

Number of samples

p : float

Probablility

approximate : bool, optional

Whether to approximate the binomial with a normal distribution if $$n p > 5 \wedge n (1 - p) > 5$$. Defaults to True.

Attributes

 implementations Container for implementing functions for different targets This container can be extended by other codegeneration targets/devices The key has to be the name of the target, the value a function that takes three parameters (n, p, use_normal) and returns a tuple of (code, dependencies)
