We use the composition method to analyse the convolutions of probability distributions by emploing the Appell polynomials and Bergström identity. Our approximation is based on the probability distributions which have the inverse generalized measure of bounded variation. The idea to use the accompanying probability distribution eλ(F−E),  λ > 0, was first proposed by B.V. Gnedenko [1].
