Compound gamma, beta and F distributions

  title={Compound gamma, beta and F distributions},
  author={S D Dubey},
SummaryIn this paper a compound gamma distribution has been derived by compounding a gamma distribution with another gamma distribution. The resulting compound gamma distribution has been reduced to the Beta distributions of the first kind and the second kind and to theF distribution by suitable transformations. This includes theLomax distribution as a special case which enjoys a useful property. Moment estimators for two of its parameters are explicitly obtained, which tend to a bivariate… 

Compound gamma bivariate distributions

SummaryBivariate distributions, which may be of special relevance to the lifetimes of two components of a system, are derived using the following approach. As the two components are part of one

A compound of the generalized negative binomial distribution with the generalized beta distribution

This paper presents a compound of the generalized negative binomial distribution with the generalized beta distribution.In the introductory part of the paper, we provide a chronological overview of

A Compound of Geeta Distribution with Generalized Beta Distribution

A compound of Geeta distribution with Generalized Beta distribution (GBD) is obtained and the compound is specialized for different values of β. The first order factorial moments of some special


A new model called the Weibull-Lomax distribution is introduced which extends the LomAX distribution and has increasing and decreasing shapes for the hazard rate function and outperforms the McDonald- lomax, Kumaraswamy-Lamax, gamma-Lmax, beta-LMax, exponentiated Lmax and Lomax models.

A Generalization Of Inverse Marshall-Olkin Family Of Distributions

We introduce a new family of distributions namely inverse truncated discrete Linnik G family of distributions. This family is a generalization of inverse Marshall-Olkin family of distributions,

The Gumbel-Lomax Distribution: Properties and Applications

A new four-parameter distribution arising from the GumbelX generator recently proposed by Al-Aqtash (2013) is introduced, which can be right-skewed and reversed-J shaped, and can have decreasing and upside-down bathtub shaped hazard rate.

A bivariate conditional Weibull distribution with application

A three-parameter bivariate distribution is derived from the marginal and conditional Weibull distributions. Its joint properties are derived and method of estimation of its parameters discussed. It


We consider random vectors drawn from a multivariate normal distribution and compute the sample statistics in the presence of stochastic correlations. For this purpose, we construct an ensemble of

Discrete Inverse Weibull Minimax Distribution: Properties and Applications

There are not many known distributions for modeling discrete data. In this paper, we shall introduce a new count data model, which is obtained by compounding two parameter discrete Inverse Weibull


Business Failures: Another Example of the Analysis of Failure Data

An analysis of data on failures of four types of business in Poughkeepsie, New York, from 1844 to 1926 confirms that the conditional probabilities of failure for these four series are well described by both exponential and hyperbolic functions.
