Abstract:

This report presents a computerized procedure for evaluating the parameters of the generalized gamma distribution from a set of random data following the method proposed by Stacy and Mihram. The computer program includes the estimation of extreme values for a specified number of observations by applying order statistics. Program listings and an example of the application of the method to surface effect ship motion data are included.
