On the characterization of an interesting property of the arcsin distribution

Johan Henricus Bernardus Kemperman and Morris Skibinsky

Vol. 103 (1982), No. 2, 457–465
Abstract

The property that product and sum of independent identically distributed random variables are equidistributed is characterized when the original distribution has all moments. This equidistribution property is shown to relate in a natural way to the uniform distribution on a compact group. The result proves a conjecture due to Norton.
