    • 5.1: Important Distributions
      In this chapter, we describe the discrete probability distributions and the continuous probability densities that occur most often in the analysis of experiments. We will also show how one simulates these distributions and densities on a computer.
    • 5.2: Important Densities
      In this section, we will introduce some important probability density functions and give some examples of their use. We will also consider the question of how one simulates a given density using a computer.
