Hey guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to understand the concept of mathematical moments (as defined in this wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moment_(mathematics)), as some work I am doing relates to them.

I am looking for more information to read up but when I search maths moments I get websites not related to it. Does anyone have any good material or book chapters that covers this concept? Specifically how to recover these moments from techniques, like cumulant or laplace.

Thanks
