Abstract

Many of the important characteristics and features of a distribution are obtained through the ordinary moments and generating function. The main goal of this paper is to address a new approach to compute, without using multiple integrals and 􏰊(Xa+b)r 􏰋 derivatives, E (Xc+d)s for a nonnegative random variable, where a,b,c,d are any real number. The proposed approach is discussed in detail and illustrated through a few examples.
