The physical sense of the free parameters of the beta-distributed oscillator (β do) dispersion model is discussed. It is shown that the set of six model parameters provides information on central wavenumber, oscillator strength, absorption edge position, asymmetry, as well as homogeneous and inhomogeneous linewidth of a complicated absorption feature. For materials satisfying the Moss rule, the number of independent β do parameters decreases down to five. We also show that the Cody absorption edge shape essentially represents a special case of the β do approach. By making use of the generalized Miller rule, we propose a generalization of the β do model to nonlinear refractive indices and absorption coefficients.
