The Laplace pdf (left) and the associated Laplace CDF (right). Remember the CDF is just the area under the curve of the pdf.

Last post, we finally got to use the exponential pdf and discovered the math wasn’t completely useless (okay, hopefully by now you know that). However, in the spirit of finding a use for the equations we are covering, let’s look at how we use the laplace pdf. It’s going to be a blast, so let’s get started!

For those who need a refresher, this is a plot of the exponential pdf we are working with today.

Over the past couple of days, I’ve been talking about several different types of pdf and the associated C.D.F. Hopefully, we have a clear understanding of each of those concepts, for those of you scratching your head, I would recommend you start here at this other post. Otherwise, let’s (finally) look at a real life example using the exponential pdf!*

The laplace p.d.f with a θ = 0.

Well here we are again… maybe unless you’re new, in which case welcome. If you are just joining us we are talking p.d.f. no not the file format, the probability density function version. If you’re new, you may want to start back here(ish) If not, then let’s talk the strangely similar laplace distribution.*
