Application of the binomial distribution

  • Roy Billinton

Some of the general concepts and properties of distributions were introduced in Chapter 2. A number of standard distributions such as binomial, Poisson, normal, lognormal, exponential, gamma, Weibull, Rayleigh were also mentioned. Most of these distributions and their application in reliability evaluation are discussed in Chapter 6. However, it is useful to single out the binomial distribution at this stage.
