Abstract: We introduce a new class of continuous distributions called the Ku maraswamy transmuted-G family which extends the transmuted class defined by Shaw and Buckley (2007). Some special models of the new family are provided. Some of its mathematical properties including explicit expressions for the ordinary and incomplete moments, generating function, Rényi and Shannon entropies, order statistics and probability weighted moments are derived. The maximum likelihood is used for estimating the model parameters. The flexibility of the generated family is illustrated by means of two applications to real data sets.
In this article a new Bayesian regression model, called the Bayesian semi-parametric logistic regression model, is introduced. This model generalizes the semi-parametric logistic regression model (SLoRM) and improves its estimation process. The paper considers Bayesian and non-Bayesian estimation and inference for the parametric and semi-parametric logistic regression model with application to credit scoring data under the square error loss function. The paper introduces a new algorithm for estimating the SLoRM parameters using Bayesian theorem in more detail. Finally, the parametric logistic regression model (PLoRM), the SLoRM and the Bayesian SLoRM are used and compared using a real data set.
We introduce a new class of distributions called the generalized odd generalized exponential family. Some of its mathematical properties including explicit expressions for the ordinary and incomplete moments, quantile and generating functions, R𝑒́nyi, Shannon and q-entropies, order statistics and probability weighted moments are derived. We also propose bivariate generalizations. We constructed a simple type Copula and intro-duced a useful stochastic property. The maximum likelihood method is used for estimating the model parameters. The importance and flexibility of the new family are illustrated by means of two applications to real data sets. We assess the performance of the maximum likelihood estimators in terms of biases and mean squared errors via a simulation study.
In this paper, we introduce a new family of continuous distributions called the transmuted Topp-Leone G family which extends the transmuted class pioneered by Shaw and Buckley (2007). Some of its mathematical properties including probability weighted moments, mo- ments, generating functions, order statistics, incomplete moments, mean deviations, stress- strength model, moment of residual and reversed residual life are studied. Some useful char- acterizations results based on two truncated moments as well as based on hazard function are presented. The maximum likelihood method is used to estimate its parameters. The Monte Carlo simulation is used for assessing the performance of the maximum likelihood estimators. The usefulness of the new model is illustrated by means of two real data set.
A new log location-scale regression model with applications to voltage and Stanford heart transplant data sets is presented and studied. The martingale and modified deviance residuals to detect outliers and evaluate the model assumptions are defined. The new model can be very useful in analysing and modeling real data and provides more better fits than other regression models such as the log odd log-logistic generalized half-normal, the log beta generalized half-normal, the log generalized half-normal, the log-Topp-Leone odd log- logistic-Weibull and the log-Weibull models. Characterizations based on truncated moments as well as in terms of the reverse hazard function are presented. The maximum likelihood method is discussed to estimate the model parameters by means of a graphical Monte Carlo simulation study. The flexibility of the new model illustrated by means of four real data sets.
In this work, we study the odd Lindley Burr XII model initially introduced by Silva et al. . This model has the advantage of being capable of modeling various shapes of aging and failure criteria. Some of its statistical structural properties including ordinary and incomplete moments, quantile and generating function and order statistics are derived. The odd Lindley Burr XII density can be expressed as a simple linear mixture of BurrXII densities. Useful characterizations are presented. The maximum likelihood method is used to estimate the model parameters. Simulation results to assess the performance of the maximum likelihood estimators are discussed. We prove empirically the importance and flexibility of the new model in modeling various types of data. Bayesian estimation is performed by obtaining the posterior marginal distributions as well as using the simulation method of Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) by the Metropolis-Hastings algorithm in each step of Gibbs algorithm. The trace plots and estimated conditional posterior distributions are also presented.
In this paper, a new version of the Poisson Lomax distributions is proposed and studied. The new density is expressed as a linear mixture of the Lomax densities. The failure rate function of the new model can be increasing-constant, increasing, U shape, decreasing and upside down-increasing. The statistical properties are derived and four applications are provided to illustrate the importance of the new density. The method of maximum likelihood is used to estimate the unknown parameters of the new density. Adequate fitting is provided by the new model.
