Sorry if this is a bit of topic but I was wondering if there was any standard set of distributions /and parameters that can be used in a simulation experiment to sort of cover all the bases? I basically need to run a simulation using a series of distribtions with the same mean, but covering a whole range of extremes: uniform and normal of course, but then also some with extreme outliers, a bimodal one etc. What would be the most sensible way to go about the selection of a set of (e.g. 10, 20) distributions to sample from?
Hope this makes sense and thanks!
