An approximation to the generalized hypergeometric distribution
- 181 Downloads
A generalized hypergeometric (GHG) distribution was defined, and its higher order approximations were given by Takeuchi (1984). In this paper, an improvement on the approximation is considered and examined by the numerical calculation. Several examples including the Poisson, binomial, negative-binomial, hypergeometric and negative-hypergeometric distributions are also given.
