This book describes the inferential and modeling advantages that this distribution, together with its generalizations and modifications, offers. The exposition systematically unfolds with many examples, tables, illustrations, and exercises. A comprehensive index and extensive bibliography also make this book an ideal text for a senior undergraduate and graduate seminar on statistical distributions, or for a short half-term academic course in statistics, applied probability, and finance.

From the reviews:
"This book will be useful for those who are interested in tractable models which allow one to go beyond the normal distribution." (ISI SHORT BOOK REVIEWS)
" A useful source of information for research in applied and theoretical statistics. No doubt, this volume will become a necessary part of any mathematical and statistical library as well as of a number of technical libraries."(MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS)
"This book is devoted to presenting properties, generalizations and applications of the Laplace distribution ... This distribution is a natural and sometimes superior alternative to the normal distribution ... The rich set of exercises is an integral part of the discussion."(ZENTRALBLATT MATH)
