Distributions.jl: definition and modeling of probability distributions in the JuliaStats ecosystem

Abstract

Random variables and their distributions are a central part in many areas of statistical methods. The Distributions.jl package provides Julia users and developers tools for working with probability distributions, leveraging Julia features for their intuitive and flexible manipulation, while remaining highly efficient through zero-cost abstractions.
