The method of moments is widely used for the evaluation of the curves for the residence-time distribution. When estimating the parameters of a model, significant errors may occur, owing to the relatively great weight applied to the tail-end of the residence-time-distribution curve, where the errors of measurement ar the largest. Several different methods have been proposed to eliminate this problem, one of them being that of weighted moments. This review presents a summary of the method of weighted moments, its application, and the estimation of errors.
