** **

(note, the ** degrees of freedom**, is a positive integer)

This distribution is a special case of the ** gamma** distribution
(for and ). It has application in hypothesis
testing.

** Beta**

(note, and )

** Cauchy**

Note: the mean of the Cauchy distribution actually does not exist strictly, but since the distribution is symmetric, it is generally taken to be .

** Erlang**

(note, n is a positive integer and )

This is a special case of the ** gamma** distribution (where is
an integer).
This distribution has applications in problems concerning the time between
independent events, which each have ** exponential** distribution.

** Exponential**

(note, )

This distribution has applications in queueing problems, lifetime of events problems and in some physics problems.

** F**

(note, and are positive integers).

** Gamma**

(note, and )

** Log-Normal**

Note that is ** Normal**, hence the name.

** Normal (Gaussian)**

** Rayleigh**

** Uniform**

** Weibull**

(note, and )

Applications in failure, reliability and lifetime problems.
