Further Continuous Distributions: Part 2

Here we continue the treatment of continuous probability functions (distributions) begun in Probability Functions: Part 2 and Continuous distributions. Our emphasis is on distributions derived from the normal distribution. We begin with the Chi-square distribution, which was already considered in Further Continuous Distributions. But here we approach it as a sampling distribution. We then consider[…]

Continuous Distributions

This is an introduction to the probability functions of continuous random variables, from a post-secondary perspective. One of the most fundamental functions of this type is the normal distribution. Since it has been covered elsewhere, our main focus is on another fundamental continuous probability function, the uniform distribution. We close this essay by considering one of[…]
