Re: finding a distribution

So $\displaystyle \phi$ is a **constant** determining the distribution and x is the random variable?

Re: finding a distribution

Ø is the parameter . Like how lamda is the parameter for the poisson or how mu and sigma are parameters of the normal distribution.

Re: finding a distribution

I am pretty sure that a Chi squared random variable is equal to a normally distributed random variable squared.

Show that x is normally distributed then show that 2πøx² has one degree of freedom

Re: finding a distribution

Just compare this to the chi-square density in your book.
