1) DOMAINS AND LIMITATIONS The beta distribution is one of the most frequently used to adjust empirical distributions where the range (or variation interval) [a, b] is known. Here are some particular cases where thebeta distribution is used, related to other continuous probability distributions: • If X1 and X2 are two independent random variables each distributed according to a gamma distribution with parameters (α1 , 1) and (α2 , 1), respectively, the random variable X1 , X1 + X2 Beta distribution α = 2, β = 3, a = 3, b = 7 The beta distribution is a continuous probability distribution.
