    The Kumaraswamy transmuted Pareto distribution

    In this work, a new five-parameter Kumaraswamy transmuted Pareto (KwTP) distribution is introduced and studied. We discuss various mathematical and statistical properties of the distribution including obtaining e...

    A note on inconsistent families of discrete multivariate distributions

    We construct a d-dimensional discrete multivariate distribution for which any proper subset of its components belongs to a specific family of distributions. However, the joint d-dimensional distribution fails to ...

    The odd log-logistic logarithmic generated family of distributions with applications in different areas

    We introduce and study general mathematical properties of a new generator of continuous distributions with three extra parameters called the odd log-logistic logarithmic generated family of distributions. We p...

    Recent developments on the moment problem

    We consider univariate distributions with finite moments of all positive orders. The moment problem is to determine whether or not a given distribution is uniquely determined by the sequence of its moments. Th...

    High quantile regression for extreme events

    For extreme events, estimation of high conditional quantiles for heavy tailed distributions is an important problem. Quantile regression is a useful method in this field with many applications. Quantile regres...

    Marginalized mixture models for count data from multiple source populations

    Mixture distributions provide flexibility in modeling data collected from populations having unexplained heterogeneity. While interpretations of regression parameters from traditional finite mixture models are...

    The ubiquity of the Simpson’s Paradox

    The Simpson’s Paradox is the phenomenon that appears in some datasets, where subgroups with a common trend (say, all negative trend) show the reverse trend when they are aggregated (say, positive trend). Even if ...

    Simulation of polyhedral convex contoured distributions

    In low dimensions, the relatively easily implementable acceptance-rejection method for generating polyhedral convex contoured uniform distributions is compared to more sophisticated particular methods from the...

    Exponentiated Marshall-Olkin family of distributions

    We study general mathematical properties of a new class of continuous distributions with three extra shape parameters called the exponentiated Marshal-Olkin family of distributions. Further, we present some sp...

    Compounding of distributions: a survey and new generalized classes

    Generalizing distributions is an old practice and has ever been considered as precious as many other practical problems in statistics. It simply started with defining different mathematical functional forms, a...

    The generalized Cauchy family of distributions with applications

    A family of generalized Cauchy distributions, T-Cauchy{Y} family, is proposed using the T-R{Y} framework. The family of distributions is generated using the quantile functions of uniform, exponential, log-logisti...

    pTAS distributions with application to risk management
