With the development of new fitting methods, their increased use in applications, and improved computer languages, the fitting of statistical distributions to data has come a long way since the introduction of the generalized lambda distribution (GLD) in 1969. Handbook of Fitting Statistical Distributions with R presents the latest and best methods
Overview. The Generalized Lambda Distribution. Quantile Distribution Methods. Other Families of Distributions. The Generalized Bootstrap and Monte Carlo Methods. Assessment of the Quality of Fits. Applications. Appendices. Index.
