A description of a triangular distribution - a distribution whose PDF is a triangle ramping up from a lower bound to a specified midpoint and back down to the upper bound. This is a very simple distribution that does not generally occur naturally but is used sometimes as an estimate of a true distribution when only the range of the values and an approximate mode of the true distribution are known.
