  • This talk is divided into two parts. We begin by showing some examples of use of the generalized inverse Gaussian (GIG) distribution in statistics. The second part of the talk discusses the (unsolved) problem of a possible use of the so-called Stein's method in deriving rates of convergence to the GIG distribution.
