Bernoulli random variable
probability of success
The Bernoulli random variable is a discrete probability random variable with probability function given by:
subject to the following conditions:
The Bernoulli random variable comes about as a consequence of a single Bernoulli trial. Success of the Bernoulli trial is indicated with x=1 and failure is indicated with x=0, where a success occurs with probability p. The parameter p is also referred to as the Bernoulli probability parameter.
