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.

 Fisher-Tippett distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In particular, the Gumbel distribution is a special case of the Fisher-Tippett distribution, also known as the log-Weibull distribution.
In probability theory and statistics the Gumbel distribution is used to find the minimum (or the maximum) of a number of samples of various distributions.
The Gumbel distribution, and similar distributions, are used in extreme value theory.

This curve follows a form suggested by extremum statistics, which is specified by a single parameter a (a=1 corresponds to the Fisher-Tippett Type I ("Gumbel") distribution.) Here, we present a framework for testing for extremal statistics in a global observable.
In any given system, we wish to obtain a in order to distinguish between the different Fisher-Tippett asymptotes, and to compare with the above work.
In addition, the convergence to the limiting extremal distributions for finite datasets is both slow and varies with the asymptote.

distribution characterizes the uncertainty in a mean when both the mean and variance are obtained from data.
The Student t distribution StudentTDistribution[n] is the distribution followed by the ratio of a variable that follows the normal distribution to the square root of one that follows the chi-square distribution with
If you take random variables that follow any distribution with bounded variance, then the Central Limit Theorem shows that the mean of a large number of these variables always approaches a normal distribution.

 Distribution Form Frame
The Gumbel distribution, a special case of the Fisher-Tippett Distribution, is particularly convenient for extreme value distribution purposes, and it may be used as an alternative to the normal distribution in the case of skewed empirical data.
The distribution is used in the analysis of variance and is a function of the ratio of two independent random variables each of which has a chi-square distribution and is divided by its number of degrees of freedom.
The exponential distribution, also known as the waiting-time distribution, describes the amount of time or distance between the occurrence of random events (such as the time between major earthquakes or the time between no hitters pitched in major league baseball).

 Weibull distribution online. Including the exponential and Rayleigh distribution.
Sometimes the distribution is used as an alternative to the normal distribution in the case of skewed data.
The distribution is used to describe extreme conditions, such as extreme wind-gusts, extreme energy release during earthquakes, or extreme stress to which components are subjected.
The exponential distribution (used to study waiting times) is a special case of the Weibull distribution with alpha=1, mean=beta and lambda(the hazard rate)=1/beta.

 Robust Communication Dynamics in Complex Networks: NIPS 2003 Workshop
The statistics of the extreme heights is governed by the Fisher-Tippett-Gumbel distribution.
In addition to the average `load' in the network, knowing the typical size and the distribution of the extreme fluctuations can be important from a system design viewpoint, since failures and delays are triggered by extreme events occurring on an individual node.
In the setting of distributed algorithms, we consider robust algorithms for spreading information when geographic locality is an issue; we find that subtle changes in the underlying rules used by such spreading algorithms -- particularly the balance between short-range and long-range communication -- can have qualitative global effects on the overall dynamics.

 AERADE subject listing for Wind speeds and turbulence - mean hourly and gust speeds, extreme speeds, turbulence characteristics.
The Lieblein method of fitting the maxima with a Fisher-Tippett Type 1 distribution is detailed and an alternative method of predicting extreme values from the parent probability distribution function (of Weibull form) is provided and allows good estimates of extreme speeds to be obtained from relatively short records.
The approach assumes an extreme-value distribution that provides an estimate of the maximum value of the fluctuating component and hence the gust speed for any averaging time and time interval within which the wind speed is observed.
In practice, the extreme value mode and dispersion parameters (or estimates) are more readily available for various regions of the world than the parent distribution data.

A speckle reduction scheme is then presented, which is based on Mallat and Zhong’s dyadic wavelet transform (MZDWT) and modelling statistical properties of the wavelet coefficients and exploiting their inter-scale correlation.
A computer simulation of B-mode ultrasound imaging is presented, which not only provides an insight into the nature of speckle, but also a viable test-bed for any ultrasound speckle reduction methods.

 Fisher & Tippett Extreme Value Theorem
I'm looking at an article that references a result by Fisher and Tippett (specific reference is "Limiting Forms of the Frequency Distribution of the Largest or Smallest Member of a Sample," Procedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society 24, 180-190 (1928)).
it seems like the parent distribution would have to be continuous, at least, and that a should be the greatest lower bound rather than just a bound.
The article presents the result as follows: if there are S independent samples of size m from a parent population bounded below by a, and if xi is the smallest value in sample i, then the limiting distribution of the minimum of the xi-values is Weibull with location parameter a as m -> infinity.

 IHS ESDU: Data Item 88037
A third example is included, showing the inverse use of the method of ESDU 88038 by which the parameters of the Fisher-Tippett Type 1 extreme value distribution are deduced from the Weibull parameters of the parent cumulative distribution (in this case a two-year continuous wind speed record).
This approach is particularly useful where complex topographic effects on wind speed at a site cannot be determined so that extreme wind speed cannot be predicted using a design wind speed map.
The errors in estimated extreme wind speed if the wind speed maxima from the two mechanisms are not analysed separately are also shown.
