How do I fit multiple Gaussians to my data?
From the new graph you've posted, it looks like the values in AbsY are not the type of data expected by fitgmdist, and I suspect...

How to compare appropriateness of fitted Weibull and lognormal models via the likelihood ratio test
Unfortunately the likelihood ratio test cannot be used this way. It is only for comparing nested models (i.e., one model has to...

Use 'trandn' function to draw random numbers from a lognormal distribution
An easy way to get random numbers from a lognormal distribution is to get random numbers from a normal distribution and then exp...

Ploting the result of a fitgmdist (of 1D data)
Say you want to plot the distribution from -15 to 15 in steps of 0.05. This would be the code: z = (-15:0.05:15)'; % Note th...

Ranking Variables by Value
You might find the second output of the sort command useful. E.g. fruitVals = [p_a p_b p_o p_p]; [~, idxOrder] = sort(fruitVa...

How to generate random numbers from a scaled beta PDF?
Generate regular beta random numbers and then rescale them. I guess you want to generate randomly from the regular beta(3,3) di...

Why does stepwiselm function output NaN with model interactions?
Multivariate techniques like stepwise regression require more cases (rows) than variables--in practice, you need at least 5-10 t...

Convolution and tolerances: how do I calculate the probability density function of the difference between two dimensions? (mechanical engieering)
In general, if h(x) and s(x) are the PDFs of the hole and shaft, respectively, then the PDF d(x) of the difference d=h-s is d(x...

How to use original n-th moments formula to calculate mean, skewness and kurtosis in uniform distribution?
I don't think mean(x) gives you what you want inside fun. Try this: fun = @(x,n) (x-0.5).^n;

How can I generate integer random variables by using exponentially distributed with a mean of 20 seconds?
If you just want integers, then use the geometric distribution instead of the exponential: r2 = geornd(1/mu2,sz1,sz2);
