This category contains results about the exponential distribution.


Let $X$ be a continuous random variable on a probability space $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$.

Then $X$ has the exponential distribution with parameter $\beta$ if and only if:

$\map X \Omega = \R_{\ge 0}$
$\map \Pr {X < x} = 1 - e^{-\frac x \beta}$

where $0 < \beta$.
