A discrete distribution where the only observations are discrete observations.
This is useful (for example) with discrete Hidden Markov Models, where observations are nonnegative integers representing specific emissions.
No bounds checking is performed for observations, so if an invalid observation is passed (i.e. observation > numObservations), a crash will probably occur.
This distribution only supports onedimensional observations, so when passing an arma::vec as an observation, it should only have one dimension (vec.n_rows == 1). Any additional dimensions will simply be ignored.
