In this paper, we introduce a new form of distributions called ”Marshall-Olkin Extended Weibull distribution”
MOEW. We study some of its structural properties and the shape of its hazard rate function. We provide some
methods of point estimation for the unknown parameters and discuss its asymptotic...

Several characterizations of Generalized Beta-generated family of distributions, introduced by Alexander et
al. (2012), are presented, giving special emphasis to the Kumaraswamy skew-normal distribution and the Beta
skew-normal distribution, special cases of this family.
These characterizations are...

In this paper an efficient estimation procedure to estimate the current population mean in two-occasion successive
sampling has been developed. An exponential regression type estimator of current population mean is proposed and
corresponding optimum replacement strategy has been suggested. The superiority...

The paper proposes to derive some new poverty indices which depend on aging classes. We also give some
properties of it and show the connection between economic measure and new poverty measures these based on the
concept of reversed residual incomes. In addition, the characterization of Pareto distribution...

From practical point of view, in a two-level hierarchical model, the variance of second-level usually has a tendency
to change through sub-populations. The existence of this kind of local (or intrinsic ) heteroscedasticity
is a major concern in the application of statistical modeling. The main purpose...

This paper introduces the four parameter transmuted generalized Gompertz distribution which includes the
transmuted Gompertz, transmuted generalized exponential, transmuted exponential, Gompertz, generalized
exponential and exponential distributions as special cases and studies its statistical properties....

The exponentiated Gumbel model has been shown to be useful in climate modeling including global warming
problem, flood frequency analysis, offshore modeling, rainfall modeling and wind speed modeling. Here, we
consider estimation of the PDF and the CDF of the exponentiated Gumbel distribution. The...

Mukerjee (1979) introduced structure (k) property of a factorial design. In this article, we introduce structure
(k1), structure (k2) and structure (k1k2) properties of a factorial design. We establish properties of each...
Pages: 108 - 116
This paper introduces a multivariate skew Gaussian process and uses it to extend the family of multivariate
spatial generalized linear mixed models to include skew Gaussian random effects. In this setting, the param-
eter estimation encounters problems because the likelihood function involves high...

Since the last few decades, constructing flexible parametric classes of probability distributions has been the most
popular approach in the Bayesian analysis. As compared to simple probability models, a mixture model of some
suitable lifetime distributions may be more capable of capturing the heterogeneity...
