Distributed

Distributed[x,dist]

or xdist asserts that the random variable x is distributed according to the probability distribution dist.

Distributed[{x1,x2,},dist]

or {x1,x2,}dist asserts that the random vector {x1,x2,} is distributed according to the multivariate probability distribution dist.

Details

  • xdist can be entered as x dist dist x \[Distributed] dist .
  • xdist is a symbolic object used in functions such as Probability and Expectation.
  • xproc[t] asserts that the random variable x is distributed according to the distribution SliceDistribution[proc,t] for the random process proc.
  • The probability distribution dist can be any symbolic probability distribution specification.
