Tags: gauss like, skewness
 P: 15 I am looking for a Probability Density Function that has the following properties:is defined on R like the gaussian has a non null (and non constant) skewness that is controlled by a parameter degenerates towards the gaussian At the moment I am using a beta function but it does not meet requirements (1) and (3). I checked the Pearson system but only the generating differential equation degenerates to that of the gaussian, not its solution... see what I mean?
 Sci Advisor HW Helper P: 2,483 I say, good luck to you. I don't think any of the commonly used distributions satisfy all of the 3 properties.
