Describe probability distribution, Advanced Statistics

Probability distribution: For the discrete random variable, a mathematical formula which provides the probability of each value of variable. See, for instance, binomial distribution and Poisson distribution. For the continuous random variable, a curve described by the mathematical formula which specifies, by way of area under the curve, the probability which the variable falls within the particular interval. Examples comprise the normal distribution and the exponential distribution. In both the cases the term probability density might also be used. (A distinction is sometimes made among 'density' and 'distribution', when the latter is reserved for probability that the random variable comes below some value. In this dictionary, though, the latter will be termed the cumulative probability distribution and the probability distribution and probability density both are used synonymously.
