Using PyCBC Distributions from PyCBC Inference
###################################################
The aim of this page is to demonstrate some simple uses of the distributions available from the distributions.py module available at :py:mod:`pycbc.distributions`.
=========================================
Making Mass Distributions in M1 and M2
=========================================
Here we will demonstrate how to make different mass populations of binaries. This example shows uniform and gaussian mass distributions.

========================================================
Sky Location Distribution as Spin Distribution Example
========================================================
Here we can make a distribution of spins of unit length with equal distribution in x, y, and z to sample the surface of a unit sphere.
.. plot:: ../examples/distributions/spin_examples.py
:include-source:
Using much of the same code we can also show how this sampling accurately covers the surface of a unit sphere.
