The distribution of modern statistics (also called the -ratio or Fisher-Snedecor or Snedecor's distribution) is a two-parameter continuous probability distribution arising out of the ratio of pairs of random variables, each divided by its own degrees of freedom. The distribution plays a very prominent role in classical hypothesis testing in econometrics and statistics as the null distribution of the test statistic in tests of overall model significance and tests of joint linear restrictions generally, in the analysis of variance, and in likelihood-ratio tests.
