Some results on non-central beta distributions
Keywords:beta distribution, non-centrality, moments, mixture representations, hypergeometric functions
AbstractIn this paper a new non-central beta distribution is defined. Several properties are derived (including various representations and moments expressions) both for the new and the standard non-central beta distribution, showing a greater tractability and interpretability of the former.
