Some Recent Advances with Power Series Distributions
Some recent results in power series distributions (psd’s on the following topics are discussed: (i) minimum variance unbiased estimation, (ii) elementary integral expressions for the distribution function, and (iii) sum-symmetric powers series distributions which is a multivariate extension of univariate psd’s.
