The distribution of a variable is a description of
the relative numbers of times each possible outcome will
occur in a number of trials. The function describing the
distribution is called the probability function, and the
function describing the cumulative probability that a
given value or any value smaller than it will occur is
called the distribution function.
A discrete probability distribution is a statistical
distribution whose variables can take on only discrete
This library contains classes for the most common
discrete distributions. They are listed in the table
DiscreteDistribution is an abstract base
class that cannot be instantiated. To create a continuous
distribution of a specific type, instantiate a class derived
