Other resources

This app is meant to be a an easy-to-explore catalog of some of the most widely used probability distributions. Other similar resources exist.

Most books in probability and statistics have an appendix with a convenient list or table of probability distributions. The one in the appendix of Gelman, et al.’s Bayesian Data Analysis is quite good.

Finally, Joe Blitzstein’s teaching on connecting distributions to stories is excellent. You can check out his book with Jessica Hwang and his famous Stat 110 course.
