Symmetric generalized logistic distribution: Distribution: Some’ momentl properties and approximation to the normall distribution

Academic Article


  • In this paper we discuss some moment properties of a symmetric generalized logistic distribution indexed by a shape parameter X and denoted by GL(X X), and show that it is asymptotically normal as X -*• oo, and asymptotically double exponential as X 0. We also show that GL(A, X) can be used to approximate the normal distribution. The proposed approximation is illustrated for specific values of X.
