represents a Gumbel distribution with location parameter and scale parameter .
  • The Gumbel distribution gives the asymptotic distribution of the minimum value in a sample from a distribution such as the normal distribution.
  • The probability density for value x in a Gumbel distribution is proportional to ⅇ^(-ⅇ^((x-alpha)/beta)+(x-alpha)/beta). »
