PROBDIST1D Usage: [P bins] = ProbDist1D(x, nbins); This function calculates the discrete probability distribution for a variable that is in a one dimensional phase space. It is simply a normalized histogram using 'hist', so nbins can take any form that hist can take, although it does not allow for all the other hist options.
