### Properties of the Cumulative Distribution Function

• The CDF relates the probability that the true (but unknown) value of the random variable $T$ is less than or equal to some observed value $t$

$$F(t)=Pr(T\le t), \quad t\in (0,\infty)$$

• The CDF is strictly positive

$$F(t) \ge 0, \forall t \in \mathbb{R}^{+}$$

• The CDF is non-decreasing

\begin{aligned}F(0)&=0\\\\ \displaystyle \lim_{t \to \infty} F(t)&=1\end{aligned}

• Alternate names for the CDF

• The distribution function

• The probability function
