Abstract
Early authors gave approximate results for negative moments of certain discrete distributions truncated at zero. Chao and Strawderman (1972) gave a technique of obtaining negative moments of the form E [(X+A)-k], Lepage (1978) and Jones (1987) discussed negative factorial moments.

In this dissertation, negative moments and negative factorial moments of generalized hyper-geometric series distributions have been investigated, with special reference to the binomial, hyper-Poisson, Poisson, negative binomial, geometric and logarithmic series distributions. These moments have been expressed in terms of hyper-geometric series functions. Recurrence relations for the negative moments and negative factorial moments of some discrete distributions have been derived using properties of hyper-geometric series functions. Further characterizations of some discrete distributions have been discussed using properties of negative moments.

New properties regarding sums and integrals of hyper-geometric functions have also been derived, using properties of probability distributions. Certain limiting cases of hyper- geometric functions have also been discussed.
