Function Description

Returns a quantile-quantile plot (versus the normal distribution) of the quantile 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 make it easier to see how close to a normal distribution the given distribution appears we also show a ‘standardised’ expected QQ-plot for an equivalent normal distribution. As not all distributions have a standard deviation we standardise the expected QQ-plot so that it goes through the lower quartile and upper quartile of the selected distribution.


Probability distributions currently recognised by the website may be listed using MnRecognisedProbDists.
