Probability density function

The function that describes the change of certain realizations for a continuous random variable.

Probability Function

In statistics, a measure of the probable distribution of some random variable. When plotted on a chart, the area under the graph represents the probable values of the random variable. It is used in foreign exchange and equities as a means of assessing probable future market trends.

These graphs also serve a diagnostic function as the suitability of the convergence (behavior of the curves) may be assessed, The sample monitoring tool offers several other very useful diagnostics including trace, history, autocorrelation and kernel density curves, as well as the actual statistical outputs of the parameters and quantiles (Credible Intervals in Bayesian parlance) around them These outputs constitute the estimates of the posterior probability distributions, which may be further utilized in statistical inference.
