comment Bizarre appearance of Cauchy-like density estimate
Ah, you caught my mistake, thanks. I should have said Sibuya: this is implicit in my MO question.

comment Bizarre appearance of Cauchy-like density estimate
Thanks, this is interesting. However, it's not just the tail that is a good fit (and I have just posted to MO about this at mathoverflow.net/questions/79623), it's the whole domain of the data (incl. near 0). Your answer does however remind me that discrete stable distributions can be obtained by combining (IIRC) a Poissonian number of Poisson RVs.

comment Bizarre appearance of Cauchy-like density estimate
At root, this is a question about whether or not the generalized CLT has anything to say about what I'm seeing. To me, this is a mathematical question. If I were primarily concerned about bandwidth selection or was sure I'd made a mistake, I would agree with the votes for "off-topic", but that isn't the motivation at all. I expect a decent answer will be mathematical in character.

I have what appears to be such a data set (corroborated by MLE but I haven't done anything exhaustive). The fits appear excellent. However, it's a small enough data set that I can't easily ID plausible distributions for the ratio (these seem noisier when considered separately).

comment What is $\prod_{k=1}^n (1-x^k)$?
I see that equation 1.30 in Stanley gives the connection with partitions. In fact the reciprocal of the product that is in the title is what actually interested me, so this is quite convenient. Thanks again!
