For any baseline continuous G distribution, we propose a new generalized family called the Kumaraswamy-G
Poisson (denoted with the prefix “Kw-GP”) with three extra positive parameters. Some special distributions
in the new family such as the Kw-Weibull Poisson, Kw-gamma Poisson and Kw-beta Poisson...

In this paper probability density function of single concomitant and joint probability density function of two
concomitants of dual generalized order statistics from bivariate Burr III distribution are obtained and expressions
for single and product moments are derived. Further, results are deduced...

In this paper three new characterizing theorems of exponential distribution are presented. They are based on equidistribution of some functions of order statistics. All of them include the median of sample of size three

We introduce a new generalization of Weibull distribution by making use of a transformation of the standard two- sided power distributed random variable. Weibull and the exponentiated Weibull distributions are submodels
of this new distribution.We show that this newly defined distribution is in fact...

Analytical determination of reliability of a complex system is item dependent and setup dependent and a very
difficult task. In this paper we propose reliability approximation based on reliability bounds for one such
engineering item - a Resistor with independent components having the Weibull distribution....

Record is used to reduce the time and cost of running experiments (Doostparast and Balakrishnan, 2010). It is
important to check the adequacy of models upon which inferences or actions are based (Lawless, 2003, Chapter
10, p. 465). In the area of goodness of fit based on record data, there are a few...

We consider the problem of nonparametric estimation of the conditional hazard function for functional mixing data. More precisely, given a strictly stationary random variables Zi = (Xi; Yi)i2N, we investigate a kernel estimate of the conditional hazard function of univariate response variable Yi given...

The uniformly minimum variance unbiased estimators (UMVUE) of the parameters and reliability functions of a bivariate geometric distribution(BGD) have been derived.The exact variances of the maximum likelihood
estimator (MLE) and of UMVUE have been derived and the corresponding mean square errors have...
