Examples and How To

Fit Probability Distribution Objects to Grouped Data

This example shows how to fit probability distribution objects to grouped sample data, and create a plot to visually compare the pdf of each group.

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.


Weibull Distribution

The Weibull pdf is an appropriate analytical tool for modeling the breaking strength of materials. Current usage also includes reliability and lifetime modeling.
