1 The Birnbaum-Saunders (BS) distribution has been largely studied and applied. A random 2 variable with BS distribution is a transformation of another random variable with standard 3 normal distribution. Generalized BS distributions are obtained when the normally distributed 4 random variable is replaced by another symmetrically distributed random variable. This al5 lows us to obtain a wide class of positively skewed models with lighter and heavier tails than 6 the BS model. Its failure rate… CONTINUE READING
