Function Description

Returns a plot of the probability mass functions of several probability distributions simultaneously, with the distribution names given by DistributionNames and with parameter values (for each distribution) given in ParamValues (with their order matching the parameter names listed by MnProbDistParamNames). The first set of elements of ParamValues refer to the first distribution, the next set to the second distribution etc. If the distributions being analysed have different numbers of parameters then you should work out the largest number of parameters any of them has and pad out the others so that all sets of elements of ParamValues have the same size. 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.
