EnvStats Probability Distributions and Random Numbers


Listed below are all of the probability distributions available in R and EnvStats. Distributions with a description in bold are new ones that are part of EnvStats. For each distribution, there are functions for generating: values for the probability density function, values for the cumulative distribution function, quantiles, and random numbers.

The data frame Distribution.df contains information about all of these probability distributions.
