Gumbel distribution

GumbelLog-Weibull distributiondouble exponential distribution
It is also sometimes called the double exponential distribution, because it can be thought of as two exponential distributions (with an additional location parameter) spliced together back-to-back, although the term is also sometimes used to refer to the Gumbel distribution.
It is also known as the log-Weibull distribution and the double exponential distribution (a term that is alternatively sometimes used to refer to the Laplace distribution).

Variance gamma process

Laplace motionVariance Gammavariance gamma model
Increments of Laplace motion or a variance gamma process evaluated over the time scale also have a Laplace distribution.
The increments are independent and follow a Variance-gamma distribution, which is a generalization of the Laplace distribution.

Generalized normal distribution

:(revealing a link between the Laplace distribution and least absolute deviations).
The least absolute deviations estimate also arises as the maximum likelihood estimate if the errors have a Laplace distribution.

Geometric stable distribution

Linnik distribution
The Laplace distribution and asymmetric Laplace distribution are special cases of the geometric stable distribution.

Multivariate Laplace distribution

Differential privacy

differentially privateprivacy-preserving
*The addition of noise drawn from a Laplacian distribution, with scaling parameter appropriate to a function's sensitivity, to the output of a statistical database query is the most common means to provide differential privacy in statistical databases.
The Laplace mechanism adds Laplace noise (i.e. noise from the Laplace distribution, which can be expressed by probability density function, which has mean zero and standard deviation ).

Besov measure

In mathematics — specifically, in the fields of probability theory and inverse problems — Besov measures and associated Besov-distributed random variables are generalisations of the notions of Gaussian measures and random variables, Laplace distributions, and other classical distributions.

Lasso (statistics)

Just as ridge regression can be interpreted as linear regression for which the coefficients have been assigned normal prior distributions, lasso can be interpreted as linear regression for which the coefficients have Laplace prior distributions.
