EasyFit supports a number of continuous distributions divided into four categories (distribution types):
The bounded distributions have a range of [a, b]:
The unbounded distributions have a range of (-Infinity, +Infinity):
The non-negative distributions can be simplified if we set the location parameter to a fixed value of 0. This simplified form is quite frequently used in many applications. However, in certain cases the inclusion of the location parameter allows to develop more valid models. For example, both two-parameter and three-parameter Weibull distributions are widely used in practice.
Thus, most supported non-negative distribution are available in two different forms, or versions: full and simplified (see Fitting Non-Negative Distributions).
EasyFit supports the following non-negative distributions:
Since the classification of continuous distributions used in EasyFit is based on the range of definition, some of them do not fall into any of the above mentioned categories. At the same time, they often represent much more valid models than many other distributions. The following advanced distributions are supported:
The phased distributions are mainly utilized in reliability analysis, while the Wakeby distribution is widely used for the modelling of extreme events. Each of the supported generalized distributions combines two or more simpler distributions. For example, the generalized extreme value (GEV) distribution combines the Gumbel, Frechet, and Weibull families.
