Abstract: Normal distribution has been used quite extensively in different areas of science and technology both in theory and practice. Although, it has several desirable properties, it has its own limitations also. Recently, various non-normal distributions (both univariate as well as multivariate) have been proposed in the literature for data analysis purposes. In this talk, we will consider different non-normal distributions and discuss their properties and provide applications in different areas.
