Binomial Distribution

  • Ludomir M. Laudański
Part of the Intelligent Systems Reference Library book series (ISRL, volume 31)


We consider the subject of the binomial distribution as the subject opening the theoretical background of Statistics. All the problems in this part of Statistics have some reference to the Theory of Probability which is sometimes bigger and sometimes smaller, but always important.
