A test on the distributions

The distributions that transform the random number stream are tested with the methods from the analysis class. We fill a histogram with values taken from the specified probability distribution with the given parameters and fit the theoretical values on the histogram with these parameters. The hypothesis of randomness is rejected if the probability is less then 0.05 or more then 0.95 in 95% or more of the experiments .
