Abstract. This paper is a synthesis of a range of papers presented at various conferences related to distribution Bramwell- Holdsworth-Pinton. S. T. Bramwell, P. C. W. Holdsworth, J. F. Pinton introduced a new non-parametric distribution (called BHP) after studying some magnetization problems in 2D. Probability density function of distribution can be aproximated as a modified GFT (Gumbel-Fisher-Tippitt) distribution.
