Statistical functions

Probability density functions, cumulative distribution functions and their inverses (quantiles) for various statistical distributions (continuous and discrete).

Whenever possible the conventions followed are those of the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics, Second Edition (or Mathworld). By convention the distributions are centered around 0, so for example in the case of a Gaussian there is no parameter mu. The user must calculate the shift themselves if they wish.

MathCore provides the majority of the probability density functions, of the cumulative distributions and of the quantiles (inverses of the cumulatives). Additional distributions are also provided by the MathMore library.
