Bayes' theorem of probability

**Derivation of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayes%27_theorem|Bayes' theorem]]** can be made by the [[../ProbabilityProductRule|multiplication rule of probability]] and some algebra. <>P(A \cap B) = P(A) \cdot P(B \mid A))<> and <>P(A \cap B) ...

Binomial distribution

Though this article tackles **[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binomial_distribution|binomial distribution]]**, a type of [[../DiscreteProbabilityDistribution|discrete probability distribution]], it is rather focused on practical questions how to use [[http://matplotlib.org|matplotlib]] to construct such distributions. [[http://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.stats.binom.html|Numpy]] offers four ...
