On the Probabilistic Structure and Properties of Discrete Lagrangian Distributions
Lagrange distributions have their origin in the Lagrange expansion for the root of an equation. The basic formula is discussed, and its relation to convolution probability functions. General formulae are given for cumulants and non-central moments. Lastly, a Lagrange-type distribution is shown to hold for a certain queueing process.
