Off topic - Compendium of distributions

Francisco J. Zagmutt
This is not an R related posting but I thought it would be interesting
for readers of this list. Apologies for any cross-posting

Dear all

Our company Vose Software has just made a very comprehensive “Compendium
of Distributions‚ÄĚ  available for free online at

The document explains the thinking behind and the uses of 76
distributions and gives plots of the distributions with different
parameter values.

It also has a section to give you a more intuitive understanding of
formulas for things like density, moments, etc. and gives lists of
possible candidate distributions for different types of problems like
waiting time, stock price movements, expert estimates, etc.

We hope you will find it useful!
