The Binomial and Related Distributions

  • Gunnar Blom
Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)


The binomial distribution was introduced in §3.5, where we also mentioned the hypergeometric distribution, the Poisson distribution and the multinomial distribution. All these distributions are related to the binomial distribution. In the present chapter, we will discuss the binomial distribution in §9.2, the hypergeometric distribution in §9.3, the Poisson distribution in §9.4, and the multinomial distribution in §9.5.
