Distributions of One Variable

  • Thomas Haslwanter
Part of the Statistics and Computing book series (SCO)


This chapter shows how to characterize the position and the variability of a distribution, and then uses the normal distribution to describe the most important Python methods common to all distribution functions. Then the most important discrete and continuous distributions are presented, such as the t-distribution, chi-square-distribution, and the F-distribution.
