The probability and statistics cookbook contains a succinct representation of various topics in probability theory and statistics. It provides a comprehensive mathematical reference reduced to its essence, rather than aiming for elaborate explanations.

Feel encouraged to extend the cookbook by forking it and submitting pull requests.


The cookbook aims to be language agnostic and factors out its textual elements into a separate dictionary. It is thus possible to translate the entire cookbook without needing to change the core LaTeX source and simply providing a new dictionary file. Please see the subdirectory translations for details.

The current translation setup is heavily geared to Roman languages, as this was the easiest way to begin with. Feel free to make the necessary changes to the core source file to relax this constraint.

Build Setup

You can build the cookbook locally via:


This first generates the distribution plots and then compiles the LaTeX source. You may have to install a few missing packages via CRAN.
