** Binomial**

** Geometric**

A specialization of the ** Negative Binomial** distribution, where the experiment
is stopped after the * first* success.

** Hypergeometric**

** Negative Binomial**

Applies to problems where an experiment is done until a * fixed* number
of successes ( **n** ) in a certain number of trials ( **k** ) occur.
These types of experiments are called * negative binomial experiments*.
The negative binomial random variable is **k**.

** Poisson**

Applies to processes with small constant probabilities. Is a good approximation
to a ** binomial** distribution for large ** n** and small ** p**.

** Uniform**
