Recursions for the Moments of Some Continuous Distributions

Mon, 29 Apr 2019 23:01:59 GMT

This post follows on from my recent one, Recursions for the Moments of Some Discrete Distributions. I'm going to assume that you've read the previous post, so this one will be shorter.  What I'll be discussing here are some useful recursion formulae for computing the moments of a number of continuous distributions that are widely used in econometrics. The coverage won't be exhaustive, by any means. I provide some motivation for looking at formulae such as these in the previous post, so I...
