A new class of distributions called the beta linear failure rate power series (BLFRPS) distributions is introduced and discussed. This class of distributions contains new and existing sub-classes of distributions including the beta exponential power series (BEPS) distribution, beta Rayleigh power series (BRPS) distribution, generalized linear failure rate power series (GLFRPS) distribution, generalized Rayleigh power series (GRPS) distribution, generalized exponential power series (GEPS) distribution, Rayleigh power series (RPS) distributions, exponential power series (EPS) distributions, and linear failure rate power series (LFRPS) distribution of Mahmoudi and Jafari (2014). The special cases of the BLFRPS distribution include the beta linear failure rate Poisson (BLFRP) distribution, beta linear failure rate geometric (BLFRG) distribution of Oluyede, Elbatal and Huang (2014), beta linear failure rate binomial (BLFRB) distribution, and beta linear failure rate logarithmic (BLFRL) distribution. The BLFRL distribution is also discussed in details as a special case of the BLFRPS class of distributions. Its structural properties including moments, conditional moments, deviations, Lorenz and Bonferroni curves and entropy are derived and presented. Maximum likelihood estimation method is used for parameters estimation. Maximum likelihood estimation technique is used for parameter estimation followed by a Monte Carlo simulation study. Application of the model to a real dataset is presented.
Marshall and Olkin (1997) introduced a general method for obtaining more flexible distributions by adding a new parameter to an existing one, called the Marshall-Olkin family of distributions. We introduce a new class of distributions called the Marshall - Olkin Log-Logistic Extended Weibull (MOLLEW) family of distributions. Its mathematical and statistical properties including the quantile function hazard rate functions, moments, conditional moments, moment generating function are presented. Mean deviations, Lorenz and Bonferroni curves, R´enyi entropy and the distribution of the order statistics are given. The Maximum likelihood estimation technique is used to estimate the model parameters and a special distribution called the Marshall-Olkin Log Logistic Weibull (MOLLW) distribution is studied, and its mathematical and statistical properties explored. Applications and usefulness of the proposed distribution is illustrated by real datasets.
Abstract: In this paper, a new class of five parameter gamma-exponentiated or generalized modified Weibull (GEMW) distribution which includes exponential, Rayleigh, Weibull, modified Weibull, exponentiated Weibull, exponentiated exponential, exponentiated modified Weibull, exponentiated modified exponential, gamma-exponentiated exponential, gamma exponentiated Rayleigh, gamma-modified Weibull, gamma-modified exponential, gamma-Weibull, gamma-Rayleigh and gamma-exponential distributions as special cases is proposed and studied. Mathematical properties of this new class of distributions including moments, mean deviations, Bonferroni and Lorenz curves, distribution of order statistics and Renyi entropy are presented. Maximum likelihood estimation technique is used to estimate the model parameters and applications to real data sets presented in order to illustrate the usefulness of this new class of distributions and its sub-models.
ABSTRACT：A new distribution called the exponentiated Burr XII Weibull(EBW) distributions is proposed and presented. This distribution contains several new and known distributions such as exponentiated log-logistic Weibull, exponentiated log-logistic Rayleigh, exponentiated log-logistic exponential, exponentiated Lomax Weibull, exponentiated Lomax Rayleigh, exponentiated Lomax Exponential, Lomax Weibull, Lomax Rayleigh Lomax exponential, Weibull, Rayleigh, exponential and log-logistic distributions as special cases. A comprehensive investigation of the properties of this generalized distribution including series expansion of probability density function and cumulative distribution function, hazard and reverse hazard functions, quantile function, moments, conditional moments, mean deviations, Bonferroni and Lorenz curves, R´enyi entropy and distribution of order statistics are presented. Parameters of the model are estimated using maximum likelihood estimation technique and real data sets are used to illustrate the usefulness and applicability of the new generalized distribution compared with other distributions.
Abstract: This paper introduces the beta linear failure rate geometric (BLFRG) distribution, which contains a number of distributions including the exponentiated linear failure rate geometric, linear failure rate geometric, linear failure rate, exponential geometric, Rayleigh geometric, Rayleigh and exponential distributions as special cases. The model further generalizes the linear failure rate distribution. A comprehensive investigation of the model properties including moments, conditional moments, deviations, Lorenz and Bonferroni curves and entropy are presented. Estimates of model parameters are given. Real data examples are presented to illustrate the usefulness and applicability of the distribution.
A new distribution called the log generalized Lindley-Weibull (LGLW) distribution for modeling lifetime data is proposed. This model further generalizes the Lindley distribution and allows for hazard rate functions that are monotonically decreasing, monotonically increasing and bathtub shaped. A comprehensive investigation and account of the mathematical and statistical properties including moments, moment generating function, simulation issues and entropy are presented. Estimates of model parameters via the method of maximum likelihood are given. Real data examples are presented to illustrate the usefulness and applicability of this new distribution.
