  • SummaryConsider mutually independent inputsX1,...,Xn onn different occasions into a dam or storage facility. The total input isY=X1+...+Xn. This sum is a basic quantity in many types of stochastic process problems. The distribution ofY and other aspects connected withY are studied by different authors when the inputs are independently and identically distributed exponential or gamma random variables. In this article explicit exact expressions for the density ofY are given whenX1,...,Xn are… CONTINUE READING
