    Computing skewness and other distributional Characteristics when pdf is known




    Hi everybody
    I want to compute skewnesss and other distributional characteristics of a gamma distribution when its shape and scale parameters are known (pdf is known, not through its variates/observations). How can I do this through R, or other software?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Look at the Wikipedia article where there is a formula.
