I needed a help,

- what will be the distribution of sum of n F distributed random variables?
- what will be the distribution of sum of n non-central F distributed random variables?

Thanks in advance!

Great if u can suggest some references too!

Are you asking for the joint distribution of the CDFs of a set of F distributions?:

[tex] F_{m_i,n_i}=\frac{\chi_{m_i}^2/m_i}{\chi_{n_i}^2/n_i}[/tex].

For m and n degrees of freedom.

First you would need to specify some [tex] x_i[/tex] for the integral of each CDF and then use the characteristic functions to obtain the joint distribution function.
