If W and Z are random variables with discrete values w1, w2,…, and z1, z2,…, the conditional distribution of W given Z = z is the distribution which assigns to wi, i = 1,2,…, the conditional probability of W = wi given Z = z.

Particularly, the price elasticity of body weight outcomes with regard to fast food prices was found to be heterogeneous over the conditional distribution of BMI for adolescents in a cross-sectional analysis with larger associations at higher BMI quantiles (Auld and Powell 2009).
In more general terms, a conditional distribution is any distribution that is conditioned on a set of known values for some of the variables, that is, on information set (Alexander 2001).

He covers events and their density, probabilities (joint, conditional and total), random variables and their functions, conditional distribution functions and the sum of two random variables, average values and moments as well as correlations of random variables and of their functions, randomness and average randomness, random systems (or at least most of them), information (such as information in genes and transmissions), random processes, spectral densities, data analysis and chaotic systems, which sounds like an oxymoron but certainly is not.

The basic idea behind the Gibbs sampling algorithm is to successively sample from the conditional distribution of each node given all the others in the graph (these are known as full conditional distributions): the Metropolis-within-Gibbs algorithm is appropriate for difficult full conditional distributions .
