Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In statistics, the method of moments is a method of estimation of population parameters such as mean, variance, median, etc. (which need not be moments), by equating sample moments with unobservable population moments and then solving those equations for the quantities to be estimated.Suppose X1, ..., Xn are independent identically distributed random variables with a gamma distribution with probability density function
