Function Description

Returns a plot of the probability density function of the probability distribution given by DistributionName and with parameter values given in ParamValues (with their order matching the parameter names listed by MnProbDistParamNames). More precisely, returns a string which is the (temporary) code for a SmartChart that plots such information.


To identify whether a given distribution is continuous (so has a probability density function) or discrete (so has a probability mass function) see MnProbDistIsCts. Probability distributions currently recognised by the website may be listed using MnRecognisedProbDists.


For further details on how to use the ChartFormat parameter to format a chart see using the ChartFormat parameter.
