### Random variable

**random variablesrandom variationrandom**

In probability and statistics, a random variable, random quantity, aleatory variable, or stochastic variable is a variable whose possible values are outcomes of a random phenomenon.

### Compound probability distribution

**compound distributioncompoundingmixture**

In probability and statistics, a compound probability distribution (also known as a mixture distribution or contagious distribution) is the probability distribution that results from assuming that a random variable is distributed according to some parametrized distribution, with (some of) the parameters of that distribution themselves being random variables.

### Generalized beta distribution

**generalized beta distribution of the first kindgeneralized beta distribution of the second kindGeneralized Beta II (GB2)**

In probability and statistics, the generalized beta distribution is a continuous probability distribution with five parameters, including more than thirty named distributions as limiting or special cases.

### Gompertz distribution

**Gompertz**

In probability and statistics, the Gompertz distribution is a continuous probability distribution, named after Benjamin Gompertz.

### Inverse-chi-squared distribution

**inverse of the chi-squared function**

In probability and statistics, the inverse-chi-squared distribution (or inverted-chi-square distribution ) is a continuous probability distribution of a positive-valued random variable.

### Mean-preserving spread

**mean-preserving contractionmean preserving spread**

In probability and statistics, a mean-preserving spread (MPS) is a change from one probability distribution A to another probability distribution B, where B is formed by spreading out one or more portions of A's probability density function or probability mass function while leaving the mean (the expected value) unchanged.

### Gamma/Gompertz distribution

In probability and statistics, the Gamma/Gompertz distribution is a continuous probability distribution.

### Reciprocal distribution

**reciprocal**

In probability and statistics, the reciprocal distribution is a continuous probability distribution.

### Generalized integer gamma distribution

In probability and statistics, the generalized integer gamma distribution (GIG) is the distribution of the sum of independent

**semi-Markov processsemi-MarkovianMarkov-renewal processes**

In probability and statistics a Markov renewal process is a random process that generalizes the notion of Markov jump processes.

### Benini distribution

In probability, statistics, economics, and actuarial science, the Benini distribution is a continuous probability distribution that is a statistical size distribution often applied to model incomes, severity of claims or losses in actuarial applications, and other economic data.
