Comprehensive reference for statistical distributions

Continuous Univariate Distributions, Volume 2 provides in-depth reference for anyone who applies statistical distributions in fields including engineering, business, economics, and the sciences. Covering a range of distributions, both common and uncommon, this book includes guidance toward extreme value, logistics, Laplace, beta, rectangular, noncentral distributions and more. Each distribution is presented individually for ease of reference, with clear explanations of methods of inference, tolerance limits, applications, characterizations, and other important aspects, including reference to other related distributions.
