function[change] = delta(ct,mt,y,b)
% The delta function is the non-uniform distributions used by the nonUniform
% mutations.  This function returns a change based on the current gen, the
% max gen and the amount of possible deviation.
%
% function[change] = delta(ct,mt,y,b)
% ct - current generation
% mt - maximum generation
% y  - maximum amount of change, i.e. distance from parameter value to bounds
% b  - shape parameter
