Gallery of Distributions (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

Created by Alan Heckert and James Filliben, this page, part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Engineering Statistics handbook, contains links to web pages describing most of the more commonly used distributions. The section focuses on both continuous and discrete distributions, some of these include: normal, t, exponential, uniform, f, chi-square, binomial, poisson, etc. Each distribution contains graphs, definitions, comments and software. This is a great collection for students learning about different types of distributions for statistical analysis.
