# R/rp.R In MobilePhoneESSnetBigData/pestim: Population Estimations Using Mobile Phone Data

#' @title Generate random vector deviates of transition probabilities.
#'
#' @description Generate random vector deviates of the transition probabilities
#' \eqn{p_{ij}(t_{0}, t_{n})} for a given cell \eqn{i} stacked into an \eqn{n\times}(number of cells)
#'  matrix
#'
#' @param n number of probability vectors to generate
#'
#' @param flist list with the prior distributions for each cell
#'
#' @return Return a matrix with \code{n} rows and as many columns as cells taken from the length of
#' \code{flist}. Each row is thus a probability vector
#'
#' @details The prior distributions are specified as named lists where the first component of each list must
#' be the name of distribution ('unif', 'triang', 'degen', 'gamma') and the rest components must be
#' named according to the name of the parameters of the random generator of the corresponding
#' distribution according to:
#'
#'   \itemize{
#'
#'     \item unif: \code{xMin}, \code{xMax} for the minimum, maximum of the sampled interval.
#'     \item degen: \code{x0} for the degenerate value of the random variable.
#'     \item triang: \code{xMin}, \code{xMax}, \code{xMode} for minimum, maximum and mode (see
#'     \item gamma: \code{scale} and \code{shape} with the same meaning as in \code{\link{rgamma}}.
#'   }
