Evolution of a multiplicity distribution can be described with the help of master equation. We first look at 3rd and 4th factorial moments of multiplicity distributions and derive their equilibrium values. From them central moments and other ratios can be calculated. We study the master equation for a fixed temperature, because we want to know how fast different moments of the multiplicity distribution approach their equilibrium value. Then we investigate the situation in which the temperature of the system decreases. We find out that in the non-equilibrium state, higher factorial moments differ more from their equilibrium values than the lower moments and that the behaviour of a combination of the central moments depends on the combination we choose.
