Functions for Rice/Rician PDF: summary statistics (mean and variance), generating random samples, and simple moment-matching to fit the distribution to data.

Similar to e.g. normpdf, normstat, normrnd and normfit from the MATLAB statistics toolbox, but for the Rice distribution, which is useful in Communications and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
