Such phenomena as dielectric, magnetic, and anelastic relaxation are often described in terms of a distribution of relaxation times. It is shown that a relaxation process which exhibits a Gaussian distribution in the logarithm of the relaxation times (a “lognormal” distribution) can be specified completely by three parameters. These are: the mean relaxation time (τ
