    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

    The family of positive tempered α-stable (pTAS) or sometimes also tempered one-sided α-stable distributions dates back to Tweedie (1984) and Hougaard (1986) who discussed it in the context of frailty distribution...

    The gamma extended Weibull distribution

    The two-parameter Weibull has been the most popular distribution for modeling lifetime data. We propose a four-parameter gamma extended Weibull model, which generalizes the Weibull and extended Weibull distrib...

    Flexible modelling of survival curves for censored data

    This article outlines flexible strategies to model survival curves for censored data and find parametric confidence intervals using generalised lambda distributions. Owing to the rich shapes of generalised lam...

    An extended-G geometric family

    We introduce and study the extended-G geometric family of distributions, which contains as special models some important distributions such as the XTG (Xie et al. 2002) geometric, Weibull geometric, Chen (Chen 20...

    Skewness-kurtosis adjusted confidence estimators and significance tests

    First and second kind modifications of usual confidence intervals for estimating the expectation and of usual local alternative parameter choices are introduced in a way such that the asymptotic behavior of th...

    Characterizations of folded student’s t distribution

    A probability distribution can be characterized through various methods. In this paper, we have established some new characterizations of folded Student’s t distribution by truncated first moment, order statistic...

    Simple robust parameter estimation for the Birnbaum-Saunders distribution

    We study the problem of robust estimation for the two-parameter Birnbaum-Saunders distribution. It is well known that the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) is efficient when the underlying model is true but a...

    A folded Laplace distribution

    We study a class of probability distributions on the positive real line, which arise by folding the classical Laplace distribution around the origin. This is a two-parameter, flexible family with a sharp peak ...
