Abstract

The discrete math area known as combinatorics has specific applications in statistics. In this paper, the relationship between combinatorics and statistics will be explored. Major areas of concentration will include: generating functions, special combinatorial numbers and their use in statistics, and the specific relationship of these functions and numbers to some of the more common discrete distributions found in statistics.
