 ```Hi Greg, Assuming this is a one-dimensional distribtution, you should use a kolmogorov-smirnov test to test this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kolmogorov-Smirnov_test I've implemented to the KS distribution from the CERN code linked in the wikipedia article, here: http://github.com/glutamate/samfun/blob/master/Math/Probably/KS.hs (warning, i wasn't able to verify the numbers coming out against anything so just check that it makes sense) So all you have to do is to find the maximal distance between your samples and the cumulative density function, multiply by the sqrt. of of the number of samples, and calculate kprob on that. I don't think you can do this in a Bayesian way because you can't enumerate all the other distributions your samples could come from?
