On Recent Generalizations of the Weibull Distribution

  title={On Recent Generalizations of the Weibull Distribution},
  author={Hoang Pham and Chin-Diew Lai},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Reliability},
This short communication first offers a clarification to a claim by Nadarajah & Kotz. We then present a short summary (by no means exhaustive) of some well-known, recent generations of Weibull-related lifetime models for quick information. A brief discussion on the properties of this general class is also given. Some future research directions on this topic are also discussed.
