Is it possible to create a bounded distribution with exclusive bounds?

I would like to define a bounded distribution where the upper and lower bounds are not included in the domain.

I think I remember @rpgoldman asking a similar question one day :thinking:
Am I mistaken Robert?

To do this you have to define an epsilon and then have variables that are bounded between l + ε and u - ε.



can I just clarify the advice given on the OP. When you say define an epsilon, do you just literally just mean something like the following:

epsilon = 1e-6
Bounded_dist = pm.Bound(pm.SomeDist, lower=1+epsilon)

Or am I missing something??


@RichardJM I believe that’s exactly what you’d do!
