Examples and How To

Compare Multiple Distribution Fits

This example shows how to fit multiple probability distribution objects to the same set of sample data, and obtain a visual comparison of how well each distribution fits the data.

Concepts

Normal Distribution

The normal distribution is a two-parameter (mean and standard deviation) family of curves. Central Limit Theorem states that it models the sum of independent samples from any distribution as the sample size goes to infinity.
