# On the Sum of Exponentially Distributed Random Variables: A Convolution Approach

@inproceedings{Oguntunde2014OnTS, title={On the Sum of Exponentially Distributed Random Variables: A Convolution Approach}, author={Pelumi E. Oguntunde and O. A. Odetunmibi and Adebowale Olusola Adejumo}, year={2014} }

In this paper, Exponential distribution as the only continuous statistical distribution that exhibits the memoryless property is being explored by deriving another two-parameter model representing the sum of two independent exponentially distributed random variables, investigating its statistical properties and verifying the memoryless property of the resulting model.
