F Distribution

Fit, evaluate, and generate random samples from F distribution

Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ offers multiple ways to work with the F distribution.

  • Use distribution-specific functions with specified distribution parameters. The functions can accept parameters of multiple F distributions.

  • Use the generic distribution functions with the specified distribution name "F" and corresponding parameters.

To learn about the F distribution, see F Distribution.

  • F Distribution

    The F distribution is often used in the analysis of variance, as in the F-test.
