•
to change any normal distribution to standard normal distribution
subtract m and divide by s

•
if you change m
it just moves the curve; z doesn't change

•
if you change s
it just scales the curve; z doesn't change

•
within one s of m
68.27% 34.135%

•
within two s of m
95.45% 47.725 %

•
within three s of m
99.73% 49.865%

Poisson expected value E(X)

Poisson variance Var(X)

•
conditional distribution
the distribution of one variable given the other

•
marginal distribution
distribution of one variable regardless of the value of the other

•
multiplication rule
probability of A and B = probability of A times probability of B given A (or vice versa)

•
addition rule
probability of A or B = probability of A + probability of B - probability of A and B

uniform distribution expected value E(X)

pdf yielding normal distribution

pdf yielding standard normal distribution

•
F(z) - F(-z)
2 F(z) - 1

•
Theorem 3.6.1 p 220
If you add two independent random variables, the sum is a random variable distributed as the sum of the means, the sum of the standard deviations

•
Chi-square distribution
assumes non-negative values only

•
t distribution
William Goset; student's t

•
F distribution
Fisher distribution; Ronald Fisher; for two independent random variables each with Chi-square distribution p225

beta distribution pdf

•
beta distribution a=b=1
The uniform distribution is a special case of the beta distribution where a=b=1.

•
beta distribution
non-parametric or distribution-free inference statistical inference where results obtained are general and are applicable to any arbitrary distribution; e.g. % of defective units in a manufacturing process, % of errors made in data entry, and % of fans satisfied with the performance of the team they support

•
Chi-square distribution is a special case of the
Gamma distribution where a= n/2 and l=1/2; n is number of degrees of freedom.
