Probability Distributions Used in Reliability Engineering
This book, developed by the University of Maryland Center for Risk and Reliability, published by the RIAC, and used as a supplemental reference book in courses offered by the University of Maryland, provides details on 22 probability distributions. Each distribution section provides a graphical visualization and formulas for distribution parameters, along with distribution formulas. Common statistics such as moments and percentile formulas are followed by likelihood functions and in many cases the derivation of maximum likelihood estimates. Bayesian non-informative and conjugate priors are provided followed by a discussion on the distribution characteristics and applications in reliability engineering. Each section is concluded with online and hardcopy references which can provide further information followed by the relationship to other distributions.
