Several distributional properties of semicircular distribution are presented. The limiting distributions of the
standardized extreme order statistics are given. Some characterizations of the distribution are shown.

Two important papers of Worsley, Siegmund and coworkers consider rotation and scale space random fields for
detecting signals in fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) brain images. They use the global maxima
of images for detection of a signal. In the current work, we utilize a reproducing kernel...

RNA-seq technology has been widely used as an alternative approach to traditional microarrays in transcript
analysis. Sometimes gene expression by sequencing, which generates RNA-seq data set, may have missing read
counts. These missing values can adversely affect downstream analyses. Most of the methods...

For square contingency tables with ordered categories, the present paper proposes an asymmetry model with
m-additional parameters, which indicates (1) the generalized marginal homogeneity and (2) the structure of
quasi-symmetry for cumulative probabilities. The proposed model includes a modified...

Ranked set sampling (RSS) is applicable whenever ranking of a set of sampling units can be done easily by a
judgment method or based on the measurement of an auxiliary variable which can be measured easily. In this
work, a modification of RSS called ordered extreme ranked set sampling is considered...

In this paper, we establish some recurrence relations for marginal and joint moment generating functions of
generalized order statistics from a new class of Pareto distributions. For a particular case these results verify the
corresponding results of Athar et al. (2012).

Here we develop an order k version of the alpha-logarithmic series distribution of Kumar and Riyaz (South
African Statist. J., 2014) through its probability generating function and derive its probability mass function, mean
and variance. The parameters of the model are estimated by the method...

In this paper, a new four parameter continuous distribution, called the Kumaraswamy Rayleigh (KW-ER)
distribution is proposed and studied. Some mathematical properties are presented and discussed, these properties
involve expansions for the cumulative and density functions, skewness and kurtosis based...

This research introduces the three parameter transmuted Rayleigh distribution with an application to fatigue
fracture data. Using the quadratic rank transmutation map method proposed by Shaw et al.  we develop the
three parameter transmuted Rayleigh distribution. This research also introduces the...
