Abstract : The report is concerned with the development of computer programs for evaluating the noncentral Beta distributions. Two series solutions are derived from the well known infinite series expansions for the noncentral Beta distributions. These solutions consist of a finite series for integer values of n, the second degree of freedom and an infinite series solution for noninteger values of n. Both types of the noncentral Beta distribution are considered. These are the Type 1 for analysis of variance applications and the Type 2 for the noncentral distribution of the multiple correlation coefficient. A complete Fortran program listing and sample output are included. (Author)
