# Chapter 5 Other continuous distributions

In addition to the normal distribution, there are many other continuous distributions that are commonly used in statistics. The below table summarises a few, followed by example probability density functions graphically displayed. We will revisit some of these distributions later on in the subject.

Distribution | Parameters |
---|---|

Student's \(t\)\(X\sim t_{\text{df}}\) |
\(\text{df}\) (degrees of freedom) |

F\(X\sim F(d_1, d_2)\) |
\(d_1, d_2\) |

Chi-squared\(X\sim \chi^2(k)\) |
\(k\) |

Exponential\(X\sim \text{EXP}(\lambda)\) |
\(\lambda\) |
