What People are Saying About This
"The most outstanding aspect of Elements of Distribution Theory is that it solidly fills a gap as an introductory coverage of approximation theory for probability distributions that gracefully avoids measure theory... Severini's proofs are clear, abundant, and illustrate the main techniques."
"A powerful introduction to distribution theory and surveys in its 14 chapters... The book's material is invaluable and has a good presentation."
Hassan S. Bakouch, Tanta University
"The exposition is clear and solving the wide variety of exercises at the end of every chapter will be of help in understanding the subject better. Students wishing to learn distribution theory quickly without the use of measure theory will welcome this book."
Sreenivasan Ravi, Mathematical Reviews
