Bullet points include: Similar to mortality ‘laws’.Both arguably motivated by rational function approximations, i.e. approximating a function by the following (where A(x) and B(x) are polynomials).Corollary is that pdfs (and/or sometimes cdfs) of many commonly used distributions can be expressed using a small number of specialised analytical functions that arise in the context of solutions to the partial differential equations referred to on the previous page.Particularly gamma, incomplete gamma, beta, incomplete beta and hypergeometric functions
