Hope someone can help me or point me to the right direction:

I have some function f(x) with some predefined domain (say zero to one: 0 <= x <= 1). I want to calculate the function that describes its histogram.

So if I choose say 100 discrete values for x (all within its domain), I get 100 values for y (y = f(x)). I choose some bin size and get my histogram that describes y's distribution.

I can then try and choose a billion discrete values and some smaller bin size and get a "better" approximation of that histogram.

What I wonder is:

Is there no formal way to analytically calculate what the histogram is for the independent variable of a given function?

Thanks tons!
