I am able to plot the probability density function (PDF) using a library such as Matplotlib, however what I really want is the underlying function/formula. Is this possible to get somehow? Surely the plot has used some kind of formula and I just want to see what that formula looks like. Best regards, jpython RE: How to get the probability density function of my data set - Larz60+ - Dec-04-2019 the source code is available here: https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib the documentation is very good and may answer your question
