Failure analysis can sometimes involve considerations of statistics and probability. This chapter reviews some of the basic types of statistical distributions in order to understand some basic principles in their use. The main focus is on the uses of the normal distribution, which is the most commonly used statistical distribution. The chapter also includes a section discussing the reliability and probability of passing.
