The Weibull distribution is one of the most important continuous probability distributions. It was first introduced to study the issue of structural strength and life data analysis and has been successfully applied to the mechanical failures of geomaterials [20-22].
Now, we introduce the generalized discrete probability distribution whose probability mass function is
However, the probability distributions of [d.sub.1L] for selected scenarios and initial scenarios are shown in Fig.
As can be seen in Figure 4, the probability distributions of normal force chains P(f) have no significant differences at four loading times and the maximum probability distribution (P(f) = 0.2495) at 0.5 x [10.sup.-3] s is greater than the other three loading times.
Copulas can be used to combine precipitation and drought indexes and to provide conditional probability distributions (with precipitation as the condition) between them.
It is well known that the space probability distributions for a moving particle at the position [mathematical expression not reproducible] can be calculated by
Law of Large Numbers indicates that the limit of the frequency tends to probability; thus the choice habits of A and B can be represented as the probability distribution of random variables X and Y:
NIST Operating Unit Physical Measurement Laboratory, Quantum Measurement Division, Quantum Optics Group Category Evaluation of probability distributions. Designed to pair with Levenberg-Marquardt non-linear fitting algorithm.
(i) First, it is well known that, on a finite measure space, the uniform distribution maximizes entropy: that is, the uniform distribution has the maximal entropy among all probability distributions on a set of finite Lebesgue measures [8].
Monte Carlo simulation is a method in which we assighn probability distributions to the input variables (critical factors) and, on that basis, we calculate output variables and the probability of their occurence.
Probability distributions can be used to create scenario analyses.
