Sums of Independent Random Variables

Part of the In Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 117)

This chapter presents an algorithm for computing the PDF of the sum of two independent discrete random variables, along with an implementation of the algorithm in APPL. Some examples illustrate the utility of this algorithm.
