 Probability distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The triangular distribution on [a, b], a special case of which is the distribution of the sum of two uniformly distributed random variables (the convolution of two uniform distributions). The Voigt distribution, or Voigt profile, is the convolution of a normal distribution and a Cauchy distribution. A probability distribution is a special case of the more general notion of a probability measure, which is a function that assigns probabilities satisfying the Kolmogorov axioms to the measurable sets of a measurable space. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Probability_distribution

 The Sampling Distribution Therefore distributions will be reviewed before the sampling distribution is discussed. When the sample button is pressed, the computer generates 100 samples of the sample size selected, computes the mean for each sample, and then draws the sampling distribution of the mean below the population model. The sampling distribution is a distribution of a sample statistic. www.psychstat.smsu.edu /introbook/sbk19m.htm

 Poisson distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia For temporally distributed events, the Poisson distribution is the probability distribution of the number of events that would occur within a preset time, the Erlang distribution is the probability distribution of the amount of time until the nth event. The higher moments of the Poisson distribution are Touchard polynomials in λ, whose coefficients have a combinatorial meaning. Albert Einstein used Poisson noise to show that matter was composed of discrete atoms and to estimate Avogadro's number; he also used Poisson noise in treating blackbody radiation to demonstrate that electromagnetic radiation was composed of discrete photons. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Poisson_distribution   (1667 words)

 Probability distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Weibull distribution, of which the exponential distribution is a special case, is used to model the lifetime of technical devices. The triangular distribution on [a, b], a special case of which is the distribution of the sum of two uniformly distributed random variables (the convolution of two uniform distributions). The Wigner semicircle distribution is important in the theory of random matrices. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Probability_distribution   (1667 words)

 Bimodal distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Bimodal distributions are a commonly-used example of how deceptive summary statistics such as the mean, median, and standard deviation can be when used on an arbitrary distribution. A good example is the height of a person; the heights of males form a roughly normal distribution, as do those of females, but when added together we obtain a bimodal distribution with values clustering around both the averages. Typically, observing a bimodal distribution indicates, as in this example, that the distribution is in fact the sum of two different distributions, each with a single notable peak. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Bimodal_distribution   (1667 words)

 Pareto distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Pareto originally used this distribution to describe the allocation of wealth among individuals since it seemed to show rather well the way that a larger portion of the wealth of any society is owned by a smaller percentage of the people in that society. Zipf's law, also sometimes called the zeta distribution, may be thought of as a discrete counterpart of the Pareto distribution. If X is a random variable with a Pareto distribution, then the probability that X is greater than some number x is given by: en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Pareto_distribution   (797 words)

 Zipf's law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In the parabolic fractal distribution, the logarithm of the frequency is a quadratic polynomial of the logarithm of the rank. The log-normal distribution is the distribution of a random variable whose logarithm is normally distributed, useful when small fluctuations multiply a quantity rather than add to it. In the tail of the Yule-Simon distribution the frequencies are approximately en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Zipf's_law   (987 words)

 Zeta distribution - Wikipedia The zeta distribution is equivalent to the Zipf distribution for infinite N. Indeed the terms "Zipf distribution" and the "zeta distribution" are often used interchangeably. What Gut calls the Riemann zeta distribution is actually the probability distribution of −log X, where X is a random variable with what this article calls the zeta distribution. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Zeta_distribution   (452 words)

 Weibull distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Weibull distributions may also be used to represent manufacturing and delivery times in industrial engineering problems, while it is very important in extreme value theory and weather forecasting. The Weibull distribution is often used in place of the Normal distribution due to the fact that a Weibull variate can be generated through inversion, while Normal variates are typically generated using the more complicated Box-Muller Method, which requires two uniform random variates. Furthermore, concerning wireless communications, the Weibull distribution may be used for fading channel modelling, since the Weibull fading model seems to exhibit good fit to experimental fading channel measurements. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Weibull_distribution   (492 words)

 Student's t-distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The t -distribution is related to the F-distribution as follows: the square of a value of t with Î½ degrees of freedom is distributed as F with 1 and Î½ degrees of freedom. The overall shape of the probability density function of the t -distribution resembles the bell shape of a normally distributed variable with mean 0 and variance 1, except that it is a bit lower and wider. Student's distribution arises when (as in nearly all practical statistical work) the population standard deviation is unknown and has to be estimated from the data. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Student's_t-distribution   (492 words)

 Sebaran probabilitas - Wikipédia The Weibull distribution, of which the exponential distribution is a special case, is used to model the lifetime of technical devices. A distribution is called discrete if its cumulative distribution function consists of a sequence of finite jumps, which means that it belongs to a discrete random variable X: a variable which can only attain values from a certain finite or countable set. The Boltzmann distribution, a discrete distribution important in statistical physics which describes the probabilities of the various discrete energy levels of a system in thermal equilibrium. su.wikipedia.org /wiki/Probability_distribution   (916 words)

 Prior probability - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia We could specify, say, a normal distribution as the prior for his speed, but alternatively we could specify a normal prior for the time he takes to complete 100 metres, which is proportional to the reciprocal of the first prior. An example is a prior distribution for the temperature at noon tomorrow. statistical inference, a prior probability distribution, often called simply the prior, of an uncertain quantity p (for example, suppose p is the proportion of voters who will vote for John Kerry) is the probability distribution that would express one's uncertainty about p before the "data" (for example, an opinion poll) are taken into account. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Prior_probability   (916 words)

 Normal distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The derivation of the maximum-likelihood estimator of the covariance matrix of a multivariate normal distribution is subtle. The normal distribution also arises in many areas of statistics: for example, the sampling distribution of the mean is approximately normal, even if the distribution of the population the sample is taken from is not normal. The normal distribution is the most widely used family of distributions in statistics and many statistical tests are based on the assumption of normality. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Normal_distribution   (4130 words)

 Electricity distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Electricity distribution is the penultimate process in the delivery of electricity, in other words the part between transmission and user purchase from an electricity retailer. Electricity industry reform has led to the creation of electricity markets through the separation of contestable retailing from distribution, a natural monopoly and the separation of the monopoly transmission from generation. Increasing the voltage reduced the current in the transmission and distribution lines and hence the size of conductors required and distribution losses incurred. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Electricity_distribution   (1092 words)

 Distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The word distribution is used to describe the range (biology) of a certain species.

 Binomial distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In probability theory and statistics, the binomial distribution is the discrete probability distribution of the number of successes in a sequence of n independent yes/no experiments, each of which yields success with probability p. The binomial distribution is the basis for the popular binomial test of statistical significance. The number of HIV-positives you pick is a random variable X which follows a binomial distribution with n = 500 and p = 0.05 (when picking the people with replacement). en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Binomial_distribution   (976 words)

 Digital distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Digital work is easy to duplicate without any loss of quality and with the direct nature and lower prices of online distribution, piracy has a far greater impact than it does for traditional media. Digital distribution (Also known as digital delivery) is the principle of providing digital information or content over the Internet, either in the form of products or services. Valve Software's Steam service became one of the best-known digital distribution outlets for video games following the release of Half-Life 2, which required access to the service in order to run. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Digital_distribution   (1440 words)
