Day #34 : Example of the Laplace pdf – 365 DoA

laplace pdf and CDF

The Laplace pdf (left) and the associated Laplace CDF (right). Remember the CDF is just the area under the curve of the pdf.

Last post, we finally got to use the exponential pdf and discovered the math wasn’t completely useless (okay, hopefully by now you know that). However, in the spirit of finding a use for the equations we are covering, let’s look at how we use the laplace pdf. It’s going to be a blast, so let’s get started!

Day #33 : Example of the Exponential pdf – 365 DoA

exponential probabilty density function example post

For those who need a refresher, this is a plot of the exponential pdf we are working with today.

Over the past couple of days, I’ve been talking about several different types of pdf and the associated C.D.F. Hopefully, we have a clear understanding of each of those concepts, for those of you scratching your head, I would recommend you start here at this other post. Otherwise, let’s (finally) look at a real life example using the exponential pdf!*

Day #32 : The Laplace p.d.f. – 365 DoA

laplace plot

The laplace p.d.f with a θ = 0.

Well here we are again… maybe unless you’re new, in which case welcome. If you are just joining us we are talking p.d.f. no not the file format, the probability density function version. If you’re new, you may want to start back here(ish) If not, then let’s talk the strangely similar laplace distribution.*

Day #31 : The Exponential p.d.f. – 365 DoA

Exponential_probability_density

Today we are talking this guy! The exponential p.d.f and its C.D.F.

Well, it has been a week, don’t even get me started. But if you’re here you don’t want to hear me complain about my week, that isn’t why we come together! Well today let’s do a bit of a dive into the exponential p.d.f. I hope you’ve brushed up, because this is going to get interesting.*
