For this reason, the negative **binomial distribution** (nbd) was deemed more appropriate than Poisson.

The negative **binomial distribution** is more robust for modeling zero-inflated and over-dispersed insect count data (Sileshi 2006).

The normal approximation of a **binomial distribution** will also be applied to estimate the minimum difficulty of the criterion test item through a control P--chart technique (Alwan, 2000).

Still others are "teacher notes" explaining strategies for introducing the **binomial distribution**, explaining the game "unders and overs" or discussing the famous Monty Hall problem.

In our search for conditional pdfs we found that if f(y|p) is a **binomial distribution** with parameters n and p and f(p) is a beta distribution with parameters [alpha] and [beta] then f(p|y) is also a beta distribution with parameters [alpha] + y and n - y + [beta] and g(y) is a beta-**binomial distribution**.

lf you were to believe that the stable distribution or the negative **binomial distribution** were the only two hypotheses to be considered, considered them equally likely (and were willing to overlook the negative and fractional home run predictions of the stable distribution) the "weight of the evidence" (Good 1981; Peirce 1878) would still be against the power law distribution.
