Statistics[Distributions][LogNormal] - log normal distribution

Calling Sequence

LogNormal(mu, sigma)

LogNormalDistribution(mu, sigma)

Parameters

mu

-

mean log parameter

sigma

-

scale parameter

Description

• 

The log normal distribution is a continuous probability distribution with probability density function given by:

ft=0t<02&ExponentialE;lntμ22σ22tσπotherwise

  

subject to the following conditions:

μ::real,0<σ

• 

The LogNormal variate with mean log parameter mu and scale parameter sigma is related to the Normal variate by LogNormal(mu,sigma) ~ exp(Normal(mu,sigma)).

• 

Note that the LogNormal command is inert and should be used in combination with the RandomVariable command.
