The distributions taken up in two recently published papers are compared and certain characterizations of them
are presented. These characterizations are based on: (i) a simple relationship between two truncated moments;
(ii) truncated moments of certain functions of the nth order statistic; (iii)...

In this paper, the problem of testing exponentiality against used better than aged in
convex ordering classes of life distributions is investigated. For this property a
nonparametric test is presented based on kernel method. The test is presented for
complete and right censored data. Furthermore,...

In this article, based on the half-Cauchy distribution, we propose a new distribution called Kumaraswamy-
Half-Cauchy distribution. Various explicit expressions for it’s moments, generating and quantile functions,
mean deviations, reliability parameter, density function of the order statistics and...

In this paper, explicit expressions and some recurrence relations are derived for marginal and
joint moment generating functions of generalized order statistics from extended type II loglogistic
distribution. Further the results are deduced for moments of k -- th record values and
ordinary order statistics.

By assuming that an underlying Gaussian-Log Gaussian (GLG) random field clipped to yield binary spatial
data, we propose a new model which provides flexibility in capturing the effects of heavy tail in latent variables.
For our analysis, we adopt a Bayesian framework and develop a Markov chain Monte...

In this paper we derive some general recurrence relations between moments of progressively Type-II right
censored order statistics from a general class of doubly truncated distributions, thus unifying the earlier results
in this direction due to several authors.

This article deals with the problem of estimating the parameters of the two-parameter exponential lifetime
distribution based on Type-II hybrid censored samples from the Bayesian viewpoint. The scale and location
parameters are assumed to have exponential and uniform priors respectively. Bayes point...

The concept of system signature is widely used for comparing of mixed (coherent) systems. In practical situa-
tions, it is usually impossible to compare mixed systems. To do this, some partial orders are considered in the
literature. In this paper, we define a new concept of stochastic order for comparing...
