# What are distributions?

### Some articles on distributions, distribution:

Sample Maximum And Minimum - Applications - Estimation
... prove very good estimators, particularly for platykurtic distributions, where for small data sets the mid-range is the most efficient estimator ... They are inefficient estimators of location for mesokurtic distributions, such as the normal distribution, and leptokurtic distributions, however ...
Statistical Interference - Dimensional Interference
... actual production, however, may reveal normal distributions with long tails.) Both the shaft and hole sizes will usually form normal distributions with some average (arithmetic mean) and standard ... With two such normal distributions, a distribution of interference can be calculated ... The derived distribution will also be normal, and its average will be equal to the difference between the means of the two base distributions ...
Syslog-ng - Distributions
... syslog-ng is available on a number of different Linux and Unix distributions ... Some install it as the system default, most provide it as a package that replaces the standard syslogd ...
List Of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations - Methods For Studying Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations - Singularities
... In the linear case one can just use spaces of distributions, but nonlinear PDEs are not usually defined on arbitrary distributions, so one replaces spaces of distributions by ...
Statistical Interference - Physical Property Interference
... With two normal distributions, the statistical interference may be calculated as above ... problem is also workable for transformed units such as the log-normal distribution) ... With other distributions, or combinations of different distributions, a Monte Carlo method or simulation is often the most practical way to quantify the effects of statistical interference ...
