Abstract : NORGEB is a computer program which tests the hypothesis that a sample is drawn from a normal, gamma, exponential, or beta probability distribution. This is accomplished by computing a chi squaretest statistic and accompanying degrees of freedom. The parameters for the theoretical distributions are estimated from the sample. For each sample tested, the mean, standard deviation, maximum and minimum data points, and a listing of the sample data are given. For each test performed, a chi squaretest statistic, associated degrees of freedom, and frequency distribution in the form of a bar chart are given. The program is written in FORTRAN 4 for the Ballistic Research Laboratory Electronic Scientific Computer (BRLESC 2). (Author)
