Unimodal distributions

Version: 0.9 beta

In a desperate attempt to preserve my own sanity, a survey of probability distributions used to describe a single, continuous, unimodal, univariate random variable.

Whats New: Added pseudo Voigt,and Student’s t_3 distributions. Reparameterized hyperbolic sine distribution. Derived limit of Unit gamma to log-normal.Corrected spelling of “arrises” (sharp edges formed by the meeting of surfaces) to “arises” (emerge; become apparent). Added Moyal distribution, a special case of the gamma-exponential distribution. Corrected spelling of “principle” to “principal” (Kudos: Matthew Hankins, Mara Averick).
