Poisson Distribution

Independent random events occuring in a defined time interval or a defined length, area or space volume follow Poisson distribution with parameter λ equal to the average number of events per the defined time, length, space or volume unit. The probabilty P of seeing exactly x events during the defined time interval or in the defined length, space or volume unit is given by the formula:
P(X=x) = e
λx
x!

Binomial Distribution

Binomial distribution of probability describes likelihoods of all possible outcomes of n successive trials where in each trial there is the same probability p of "success" (i.e. of a defined result like e.g. a head when tossing a coin). The probabilty P of seeing exactly x successes in n successive trials is given by the formula:
P(X=x) =
n!
x!(n - x)!
px(1-p)n-x

Hypergeometric Distribution

Hypergeometric distribution describes the probability of x successes (random draws for which the object drawn has a specified feature) in n draws, without replacement, from a finite population of size N that contains exactly M objects with that feature, wherein each draw is either a success or a failure:
P(X=x) =
(

Geometric Distribution

The geometric distribution gives the probability that the first occurrence of a success requires x independent trials, each with the success probability p. The probability P that the x-th trial is the first success is described by the formula:
P(X=x) = p(1-p)x-1

x>0, 0<p<1

Negative Binomial Distribution

Negative binomial distribution describes the probability that the x-th independent trial will be the k-th success provided each success has the same probability p:
P(X=x) = (
x-1
k-1
) (1-p)x-k pk
Alternatively, the distribution describes the probability of the next independent trial being the k-th success after a fixed number r of failures have occured:
P(k, r) = (
k+r-1
k-1
) (1-p)r pk

x>0, k>0, x≥k, r≥0, 0<p<1; x = k + r
