The Edgeworth expansion is used to go beyond the usual Gaussian approximation
for collision energy loss and multiple scattering. Monte Carlo algorithms
based on the expansion are presented. Comparisons of the Edgeworth expansion
with exact results ov Vavilov and Moliere are shown. A simple model which
attempts to include correlations between energy loss and angular distribution
is proposed and illustrated with an example.
