    hi, I am looking for a proof of weibull distribution, I have searched a lot but nothing is reasonable for the proof, so ıs there derivation of this distribution ? What is the origin of this distribution ?

    I am asking because of my curiosity, initially I would like to express that there are lots of posts have been created under this highlight after my post, and I see plenty of replies exist for those posts, but still I do not have any responses to my question. Is there a problem with my question, did I create my post under wrong highlight ?

    You can read Weibull's original paper, he hit upon his distribution empirically because it seemed to fit various observations in failure analysis. What exactly are you looking to prove?
