In this section, we will briefly examine the properties of various probability distributions. Many of these distributions are used for Bayesian analysis; thus, a brief synopsis is needed. We will also illustrate how to generate and display these distributions using `matplotlib`

. In order to avoid repeating import statements for every code snippet in each section, I will present the following standard set of Python code imports that need to be run before any of the code snippets mentioned in the following command. You only need to run these imports once per session. The imports are as follows:
