I will be wrong linguistically, but I hate the definition of 'a' here. What
is it to be? I assume it is a reference to an array, I guess. But then why
not just take a reference to the first element and a count, or use a range
(pointer + size)?
Sorry, I don't know anything about boost/math/distributions. But this kind
of nonproblem being a problem is in fact, a problem.
If 'a' is just an array, say it like it is. Why make a fuss?
