    Propability function of |x-y|

    Hello everybody.

    I need a littlehelp with statistics.
    If x is a variable and X(m11) its propability function (normal distribution)
    and y another variable and Y(m2,σ2) its propability function (normal distribution),
    what if the propability function of |x-y| and what kind of distribution is it?
    I know it is not normal since |x-y|>0.

    Thanks in advance.
