The Logistic-Exponential Survival Distribution

  title={The Logistic-Exponential Survival Distribution},
  author={Yingjie Lan and L. Leemis},
  journal={Naval Research Logistics},
For various parameter combinations, the logistic-exponential survival distribution belongs to four common classes of survival distributions: increasing failure rate, decreasing failure rate, bathtub-shaped failure rate, and upside-down bathtub-shaped failure rate. Graphical comparison of this new distribution with other common survival distributions is seen in a plot of the skewness versus the coefficient of variation. The distribution can be used as a survival model or as a device to determine… Expand
The Marshall-Olkin logistic-exponential distribution
ABSTRACT We introduce a three-parameter extension of the exponential distribution which contains as sub-models the exponential, logistic-exponential and Marshall-Olkin exponential distributions. TheExpand
Two-Parameter Logistic-Exponential Distribution: Some New Properties and Estimation Methods
Abstract The logistic exponential (LE) distribution is the only two parameter distribution that exhibits five hazard rate shapes such as constant, increasing, decreasing, bathtub, and upside-downExpand
Estimation of parameters of the logistic exponential distribution under progressive type-I hybrid censored sample
The paper addresses the problem of estimation of the model parameters of the logistic exponential distribution based on progressive type-I hybrid censored sample. The maximum likelihood estimates areExpand

A general method for deriving new survival distributions from old is presented, which yields a class of useful mixture distributions that are extensions of the Weibull, exponential, gamma and lognormal distributions. Expand
The Inverse-Power Logistic-Exponential Distribution: Properties, Estimation Methods, and Application to Insurance Data
The present paper proposes a new distribution called the inverse power logistic exponential distribution that extends the inverse Weibull, inverse logistic exponential, inverse Rayleigh, and inverseExpand
Kurtosis of the logistic-exponential survival distribution
ABSTRACT In this article, the kurtosis of the logistic-exponential distribution is analyzed. All the moments of this survival distribution are finite, but do not possess closed-form expressions. TheExpand
Nonmonotone Hazard Quantile Functions
The existence of nonmonotonic hazard rates was recognized from the study of human mortality three centuries ago. Among such hazard rates, ones with bathtub or upside-down bathtub shape have receivedExpand

Software Reliability Growth Model Based on Half Logistic Distribution
A non-homogeneous Poisson process with its mean value function generated by the cumulative distribution function of half logistic distribution is considered. It is modeled to assess the failureExpand


A Reliability Distribution With Increasing, Decreasing, Constant and Bathtub-Shaped Failure Rates
A distribution with one scale and two shape parameters is studied. The distribution can describe increasing (I), decreasing (D), constant and bathtub-shaped (B) failure rates. This motivates theExpand
The exponentiated Weibull family: a reanalysis of the bus-motor-failure data
The Weibull family with survival function exp{-(y/σ)α}, for α > 0 and y ≥ 0, is generalized by introducing an additional shape parameter θ. The space of shape parameters α > 0 and θ > 0 can beExpand
