The beta Gumbel distribution
The Gumbel distribution is perhaps the most widely applied statistical distribution for problems in engineering. In this paper, we introduce a generalization—referred to as the beta GumbelExpand

The Exponentiated Type Distributions
Gupta et al. [Commun. Stat., Theory Methods 27, 887–904, 1998] introduced the exponentiated exponential distribution as a generalization of the standard exponential distribution. In this paper, weExpand

A new lifetime distribution
Many if not most lifetime distributions are motivated only by mathematical interest. Here, a new three-parameter distribution motivated mainly by lifetime issues is introduced. Some properties of theExpand

The Kumaraswamy Weibull distribution with application to failure data
For the first time, we introduce and study some mathematical properties of the Kumaraswamy Weibull distribution that is a quite flexible model in analyzing positive data. Expand

A generalized normal distribution
Abstract Undoubtedly, the normal distribution is the most popular distribution in statistics. In this paper, we introduce a natural generalization of the normal distribution and provide aExpand

An extension of the exponential distribution
A generalization of the exponential distribution is presented. The generalization always has its mode at zero and yet allows for increasing, decreasing and constant hazard rates. It can be used as anExpand
