    //! Inverse cumulative random number generator
    /*! It uses a uniform deviate in (0, 1) as the source of cumulative
        distribution values.
        Then an inverse cumulative distribution is used to calculate
        the distribution deviate.

        The uniform deviate is supplied by RNG.

        Class RNG must implement the following interface:
        \code
            RNG::sample_type RNG::next() const;
        \endcode

        The inverse cumulative distribution is supplied by IC.

        Class IC must implement the following interface:
        \code
            IC::IC();
            Real IC::operator() const;
        \endcode
