### Reference request for Boltzmann's Theorem on maximum entropy distributions

Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_entropy_probability_distribution#Distributions_with_measured_constants) describes in detail a theorem which gives the maximum entropy probability ...

### An article that explains what happens to CNNs when the training and testing data follow different distribution

Is there any good paper (sort of best practices) that experimentally explains what happens to CNNs when the training and testing data follow different distribution. This is for the case when CNN is ...

### Comparing estimation procedures via Monte Carlo simulations

I am looking for references of studies that show how to use Monte Carlo simulations to compare different estimators for any given parameter of any probability distribution (for example, comparing the ...

### Generalization of the Irwin-Hall distribution for general linear combinations of uniform variables?

Consider the random variable $Z$, defined by: $$Z = \sum_{k=1}^n c_k X_k$$ where $X_k \sim U[0,1]$ is a real random variable with continuous uniform distribution between 0 and 1, and the $c_k$ are ...

### Why does the author subtract the minimum $\ln\,\ln([1-F(t)]^{-1}])$ for the Weibull plot?

When I read the Weibull Analysis Handbook (Abernethy et al., (1)), in Table 2.1 (p15), I don't really know how he gets the right-hand column ("Col 2 value - Min Col 2 value (-6,91)). Does he assume it ...

### Processes behind statistical distribution laws: a compendium?

The simple processes that "explain" the binomial, Gaussian or Poisson distribution are relatively well-known. Johnson or shot noises may be known in restricted area of science. Sometimes, a ...

### Where can I get information about relationships among probability distributions in statistics?

I'm interested in relationships among distributions. Like 'Sum of exponential random variables is a gamma random variable. Certain conditional distribution is another distribution etc.' I searched ...

### Distribution cheat sheet for Bayes data analysis

Has anyone developed a "cheat sheet" of sorts that describes the appropriate use of distribution types for different types of data? For example, beta for coin-type data (e.g. Therapy versus control), ...
My goal is estimating the distribution parameters of a multivariate Gaussian $\mathcal{N}(\mu,\Sigma)$ in $\mathbb{R}^n$ from observations that were generated from different conditioned variants of ...
