###### §8.23 Statistical Applications

►The functions $P(a,x)$ and $Q(a,x)$ are used extensively in statistics as the probability integrals of the gamma distribution; see Johnson et al. (1994, pp. 337–414). …The function ${\mathrm{B}}_{x}(a,b)$ and its normalization ${I}_{x}(a,b)$ play a similar role in statistics in connection with the beta distribution; see Johnson et al. (1995, pp. 210–275). …##### 6: Donald St. P. Richards

…
►The latter reference also describes chemical applications of other combinatorial techniques.
►Applications of combinatorics, especially integer and plane partitions, to counting lattice structures and other problems of statistical mechanics, of which the Ising model is the principal example, can be found in Montroll (1964), Godsil et al. (1995), Baxter (1982), and Korepin et al. (1993).
For an application of statistical mechanics to combinatorics, see Bressoud (1999).
