List of Probability Distributions

Many probability distributions that are important in theory or applications have been given specific names.

Discrete distributions

With finite support

With infinite support

Continuous distributions

Supported on a bounded interval

Supported on intervals of length 2? - directional distributions

Supported on semi-infinite intervals, usually [0,∞)

Supported on the whole real line

With variable support

  • The generalized extreme value distribution has a finite upper bound or a finite lower bound depending on what range the value of one of the parameters of the distribution is in (or is supported on the whole real line for one special value of the parameter
  • The generalized Pareto distribution has a support which is either bounded below only, or bounded both above and below
  • The Tukey lambda distribution is either supported on the whole real line, or on a bounded interval, depending on what range the value of one of the parameters of the distribution is in.
  • The Wakeby distribution

Mixed discrete/continuous distributions

Joint distributions

For any set of independent random variables the probability density function of their joint distribution is the product of their individual density functions.

Two or more random variables on the same sample space

Distributions of matrix-valued random variables

Non-numeric distributions

Miscellaneous distributions
