Our research is focused on the analysis of special classes of probability distributions. New statistical methods for distributions from these classes are suggested and theoretically characterized, namely, parameter estimations, goodness of fit tests, and parametric and non-parametric statistical inference. This statistical apparatus is then applied to specific problems in metrology, insurance and financial mathematics, linguistics and demography. As a part of the project, computational methods and algorithms are constructed for these statistical procedures.
