Description of Distributions I: Real x

  • Hanns L. Harney
Part of the Advanced Texts in Physics book series (ADTP)


In the present chapter, some important distributions are defined and described. The event variable x is real, i.e. the distributions are probability densities. In Sect. 4.1, we describe Gaussian models. The exponential distribution is described in Sect. 4.2. The Cauchy distribution and Student’s t-distribution are defined in Sect. 4.3.
