Spreadsheet Formulas - Distributions and Their Functions

Statistica provides a predefined broad selection of distribution functions, their integrals and inverse distribution functions that can be used in spreadsheet formulas like all other functions.

Below is a list of all available distributions (parameters are given in parentheses).
