A Two-Parameter Lindley Distribution for Modeling Waiting and Survival Times Data

  title={A Two-Parameter Lindley Distribution for Modeling Waiting and Survival Times Data},
  author={H. Nadarajah and Jorge Alberto Achcar},
In this paper, a two-parameter Lindley distribution, of which the one parameter Lindley distribution (LD) is a particular case, for modeling waiting and survival times data has been introduced. Its moments, failure rate function, mean residual life function, and stochastic orderings have been discussed. It is found that the expressions for failure rate function mean residual life function and stochastic orderings of the two-parameter LD shows flexibility over one-parameter LD and exponential… CONTINUE READING
