how to prolong the fit distribution curve to reach x-axis ?
1 view (last 30 days)
I got the best fit distribution to a failure rate (data)
Now I want to prolong the fitted distribution curve to reach x-axis (in both tails)
binWidth = 1;
binCtrs = 0:binWidth:18;
counts = hist(data,binCtrs);
nu = length(data);
prob = counts / (nu * binWidth); % rescale the figure
paramEsts = gevfit(data); %estimate parameter
xgrid = linspace(0,18,100);
pdfEst = gevpdf(xgrid,paramEsts(1),paramEsts(2),paramEsts(3)); hold on;
to (fit distribution &) produce this figure:
Now , I want to prolong/extend the curve to reach x-axis
xaxis=linspace(-5,22); % create Matching vector
but it produced another distribution.

According to the documentation on the Generalized Extreme Value Distribution particualrly the Examples section, it may or it may not have a zero probability at some value of x. (It will never cross zero.) It all depends on what the distribution is for your data. Extend your xgrid vector in the negative and positive directions and see what it does.
