### How to set Ornstein-Uhlenbeck function with deterministic, not a constant parameter [closed]

I want to calculate Mean and Variance of this equation $$r(t) = x(t) +y(t) + k(t), r(0) = r_0,$$ $$dx(t) = -ax(t)dt + σdW_1(t), x(0) = 0,$$ $$dy(t) = -by(t)dt + ηdW_2(t), y(0) = 0,$$ Where $W_n(t)$ ...

### Problems with DiscreteUniformDistribution

DiscreteUniformDistribution does not seem to work as it should. For a very simple example, let's consider a discrete random variable with PMF given by prob(-1)=1/2 and prob(1)=1/2. First, we create ...
