The problem of finding the probability density function of the product of n identically distributed independent normal variables was solved by Springer and Thompson (1966). Their formulae for n ⩽ 7 are simplified in this paper and generalized to an arbitrary number of factors. Similar formulae for the corresponding probability distribution functions are derived. The applicability of these results to the cases of the negative exponential, Weibull and gamma distributions is discussed.
