The computational procedure of Brice [8] is extended to permit computation of third central moments for the projected range distribution, using the LSS formulation of the range problem. Third central moments for B, P, As, and Sb in Si are computed for, initial energy in the range 20 keV to 1 MeV, and the results are compared with available experimental data. The agreement is considered to be very satisfactory.
