A discrete distribution with the differential @M03716@ of the form: $f_{\text{w}}(x) = a^{2}\ x\ (1- a)^{x- 1}$ where $$x$$ is a parameter characterizing the @C00956@, such as @R05271@ or @D01569@ and $$a$$ is a positive adjustable parameter. For large values of $$x$$, the most probable distribution converges to the particular case of the @S05502@ with $$b=1$$. In the literature, this distribution is sometimes referred to as the Flory distribution or the Schulz–Flory distribution.
