Birnbaum and Saunders introduced in 1969 a two-parameter lifetime distribution which has been used quite successfully to model a wide variety of univariate positively skewed data. Diaz-Garcia and Leiva-Sanchez [9] proposed a generalized Birnbaum-Saunders distribution by using an elliptically symmetric distribution in place of the normal distribution.(More)
In this note we propose an extended skew-Laplace distribution. We obtain explicit expressions for moment generating function and the two first moments of this distribution. Next, we show that the distribution of a linear combination of order statistics from a bivariate Laplace distribution can be expressed as a mixture of extended skew-Laplace(More)
