An Everywhere Convergent Series Representation of the Distribution of Hotelling's Generalized T_{0}^{2}



A new series representation of the exact distribution of Hotelling's generalized T_{0}^{2}statistic is obtained. Unlike earlier work, the series representation given here is everywhere convergent. Explicit formulae are given for both the null and the noncentral distributions. Earlier results by Constantine [1], which are convergent on the interval [0,1), are also derived quite simply from our formulae.
