and is referred to as the point of a distribution. In other words, the point of a distribution is the point such that of the distribution lies to the right of it.

From the above definition,

So that

Therefore we need to solve

for in order to find the point of the distribution. For example, for ,

and

Hence,

so that

The procedure is very different for other values of . Consider the case . Here

and

Hence,

Since if then , where is Lambert's W function,

and so
