### The Distribution of the Product of Two Central or Non-Central Chi-Square Variates

W. T. Wells, R. L. Anderson, and John W. Cell

#### Abstract

The operational method of Mellin transforms is employed here to derive some interesting distribution functions. The distribution of the product of two non-central chi-square variates is obtained and some special cases exhibited. Finally, an application of the derived distributions to a problem in products of complex numbers is discussed.
