- Mathematics : The study of quantities, structures, their relations, and changes thereof.
- Normal distribution : a symmetrical bell-shaped probability distribution representing the frequency of random variations of a quantity from its mean.
- Poisson distribution : a probability distribution that is typically used to model the number of independent events (occurring at a constant average rate) that fall within a stated interval.
- Probability : a numerical measure - on a scale of 0 to 1 - of the likelihood of an event, based either upon objective evidence or upon subjective judgement.
- Probability distributions : a mathematical expression that defines the probability of occurrence of every possible value of a random variable.
- Random variable : a variable whose value is determined by chance rather than as a result of a known cause.
