In this paper, the maximum likelihood estimates (MLE's) of the parameters of a finite mixture of modified Weibull (MW (alpha, beta, gamma)) distributions are obtained based on type-I and type-II censored samples using the EM algorithm. A simulation study is carried out to study the behavior of the mean...

Some distributional properties of Levy distribution are presented. Limiting distributions of the
extreme order statistics are given. Based on the distributional properties a characterization of the Levy
distribution is shown.

The strength-reliability of equipment is defined as the probability that the strength of the equipment exceeds
its stress. Augmentation of strength-reliability of equipments gives better service protection and longevity. In
this paper, the concept of Augmentation Strategy Plan (ASP) is introduced under...

The problem of characterizing a distribution is an important problem which has recently attracted the attention
of many researchers. Thus, various characterizations have been established in many different directions. The
present work deals with the characterizations of a general class of distributions....

Reinforced balanced incomplete block designs (BIBDs) are very useful in statistical planning of
experiments as they can be constructed for any number of treatments for given numbers of
replications. Das (1958) was first to introduce the statistical analysis of variance (ANOVA) of these

The Marshall–Olkin Extended Exponential distribution is introduced and reliability properties are studied. The
p.d.f.’s of nth record value, joint p.d.f.’s, of mth and nth record values are derived to obtain the expression for
mean, variance and covariance of reord values. The entropy of jth record...

Considered is a linear ‘interactive’ model in the context of survey sampling. This situation arises when investigator
and/or supervisor interventions are contemplated in the responses. An appropriate linear model is introduced
to represent the response profile(s) arising out of each respondent-cum-investigator-cum-supervisor...
