      Are you aware of the article? or criticisms of its method?

      Pickering's book of which Waltz wrote was a re-do of his Th.D.
      dissertation under Zane Hodges at Dallas Theol. Sem.
      Hodges (co-author with Arthur Farstad of The Greek New Testament
      According to the Majority Text) used the "expertise" of his brother
      (David M. Hodges, BS Mathematics, Wheaton College, 1957) who I
      believe was in the Army as a statistician at the time for the
      mathematical probability chart you refer to. You may have seen
      something similar in one of Hodges articles in the late seventies in
      JETS. Specifically I know he had articles in Vols. 21:1 & 2 in
      1978. He was thoroughly critiqued by Gordon D. Fee at the time. As
      Waltz mentioned, the material was then used by Pickering in Appendix C
      of his book.
