Cumulative distribution function.


Let $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$ be a probability space.

Let $X$ be a real-valued random variable on $\struct {\Omega, \Sigma, \Pr}$.


The cumulative distribution function (or c.d.f.) of $X$ is denoted $F_X$, and defined as:

$\forall x \in \R: \map {F_X} x := \map \Pr {X \le x}$
