A generalized exponential distribution with increasing, decreasing and constant shape hazard curves

A generalized exponential distribution with increasing, decreasing and constant shape hazard curves

We calculate the average estimates (AEs), mean square errors (MSEs) and biases. The outcomes of the Monte Carlo simulation study are presented in Table 1. The findings of simulated results indicate that as ’n’ increases the MSE decrease and approaching towards zero, as usually expected under the first-order asymptotic theory. The aver- age parameter estimates tend to be closer to the true parameters as the sample size ’n’ increases. An obvious fact can be seen during estimation of parameters is that the asymptotic normal distribution provides a satisfactory approximation to the finite sam- ple distribution of the estimates. This normal approximation can be upgraded by the adjustment of bias to the estimates. First-order bias correction plays an excellent role in bias reduction but MSE might increase. Correction of bias is beneficial in practice depends mainly on the shape of the bias function and the variance of the MLE.

Estimation of P(Y X) using record values from the generalized inverted exponential distribution

Estimation of P(Y X) using record values from the generalized inverted exponential distribution

In recent years there has been a growing interest in the study of inference problems associated with stress-strength model and record values. The estimation problem of R = P(Y < X) based on record values was firstly considered by Baklizi (2008) who estimated the reliability function based on URV for one and two parameters exponential distribution. Subsequent papers extended this work assuming various lifetime distributions for stress and strength random variables, for instance Baklizi (2012) estimated R based on URV for the Weibull distribution. Wang and Zhang (2013) estimated R for a class of distributions. Latterly, Salehi and Ahmadi (2015) considered the estimation of R based on URRSS from one-parameter exponential distribution and studied its performance.

Estimation of the Generalized Power Weibull Distribution Parameters Using Progressive Censoring Schemes

Estimation of the Generalized Power Weibull Distribution Parameters Using Progressive Censoring Schemes

In this paper, we discussed the estimation problem of the unknown parameters of the GPW distribution based on progressive type-II censoring scheme, type-II censoring data and complete censoring data. We used MLE and Bayesian estimation methods to estimate the unknown parameters. The performances of the maximum likelihood estimators are also quite satisfactory. We obtained the Bayes estimates based on binary loss function and square error loss function under the assumption of independent gamma priors. A real data set is used to show how the scheme works in practice. The performance of the different estimator’s optimal censoring schemes is compared based on simulation study to determine the optimal censoring schemes by using MSE and Bias. It is observed that Bayesian estimates with respect to the gamma priors behave quite similarly with the corresponding MLE in terms of mean squared errors. We note that the complete censoring is a special case of the progressive type II censoring scheme that can be obtained simply by taking , and note that the usual type II censoring scheme is a special case of the progressive type II censoring scheme that can be obtained simply by taking .

Baklizi (2008 b) and Wong and Wu (2009) have discussed the MLE, Bayesian estimation and interval estimation of P ( X  Y ) respectively using lower record values from the generalized exponential distribution. Hassan et al. (2015) have described the estimation of stress-strength reliability for exponentiated inverted weibull distribution based on lower record values. Basirat et al. (2016) have derived the estimation of stress strength parameter for proportional hazard rate models for upper record values. Condino et al. (2018) have considered a similar problem for proportional reversed hazard model based on lower records. Khan and Arshad (2016) have studied the UMVU estimation of reliability function and stress- strength reliability from proportional reverse hazard family based on lower records. MLE, approximate Bayes estimator and the exact CIs of stress-strength reliability for the two-parameter bathtub-shaped lifetime distribution based on upper record values have been deduced by Tarvirdizade and Ahmadpour (2016). Mahmoud et al. (2016) have deduced the result for the Bayesian estimation of P ( X  Y ) for the Lomax distribution based on upper record values. In this paper, Mahmoud et al. (2016) described the MLE of stress-strength reliability in two cases, when all the parameters are unknown and when scale parameter is common and known. Amin (2017) has discussed the estimation of stress-strength reliability based on upper record values for Kumaraswamy Exponential distribution.

Bayesian and Maximum Likelihood Estimation for the Weibull Generalized Exponential Distribution Parameters Using Progressive Censoring Schemes

Bayesian and Maximum Likelihood Estimation for the Weibull Generalized Exponential Distribution Parameters Using Progressive Censoring Schemes

We note the greater the sample size, the greater the efficiency of the estimator in terms of lower values of MSE, Bias and L.C.I. If the ratio of effective sample sizes (r) increases for censoring sample, then the value of the MSE decreases for the parameters of WGED. The focus is on the output of the small ratio of effective censoring sample sizes, where the rare cases occur, and the small problems of loss. The study confirms the compatibility of the result in large Sampling sizes. The previous results confirm the compatibility of the Bayesian estimation for Linex loss function, which has the lowest of MSE values compared to other estimators, followed by SE loss function and finally the maximum likelihood estimation. scheme III is the best censoring scheme where it has the lowest MSE and the narrower L.C.I.

Negative Binomial-Generalized Exponential Distribution: Generalized Linear Model and its Applications

Negative Binomial-Generalized Exponential Distribution: Generalized Linear Model and its Applications

In recent times, researchers have shown more interest in using Bayes approach over MLE to estimate parameters. Statistical software programs, such as WinBUGS and OpenBUGS, use the Bayes approach for parameter estimation. Full Bayes (FB) and EB are two different approaches that have been proposed in highway safety research. The FB approach is more flexible when compared to EB method which makes FB approach easier to use to model crash data (Miranda-Moreno, 2006). Researchers have shown interest in using hierarchical Bayes model to model crash data by Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method (Miaou and Song, 2005; Miranda Moreno et al, 2007; Miaou and Lord, 2003). Lord and Park (2013) provided the sampling procedure for MCMC simulation by using slice sampling algorithm within Gibbs sampling. The formulation of the Poisson-Gamma model is given below:

Statistical Properties of the Exponentiated Generalized Inverted Exponential Distribution

Statistical Properties of the Exponentiated Generalized Inverted Exponential Distribution

3 Department of Statistics and Operations Research, Modibbo Adama University, Yola, Adamawa State, Nigeria Abstract We provide another generalization of the inverted exponential distribution which serves as a competitive model and an alternative to both the generalized inverse exponential distribution and the inverse exponential distribution. The model is positively skewed and its shape could be decreasing or unimodal (depending on its parameter values). The statistical properties of the proposed model are provided and the method of Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE) was proposed in estimating its parameters.

Estimations on the Generalized Exponential Distribution Using Grouped Data

Estimations on the Generalized Exponential Distribution Using Grouped Data

As noted, θ ˆ and hence its MSE MG cannot be put in a convenient closed form. Therefore, MSE’s of the estimators are empirically evaluated based on a Monte-Carlo simulation study of 1,000 samples by MATLAB mainly for small sample sizes. The simulation study was carried out for θ = 1 with sample sizes n = 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 20. These samples were placed into five intervals ( k = 4 ) with δ = 1 . The loss and prior parameters are arbitrarily taken as c = −1.5, −1, −0.5, 0.5, 1 and 1.5, α = 2 and

Raqab and Madi [13] discussed the classical and Bayesian inferential procedure for progressively type II censored data from the generalized Rayleigh distribution. The results showed that the maximum likelihood estimators of the scale and shape parameters can be obtained via EM algorithm based on progressive censoring. Krishna and Kumar [14] discussed the inference problems in Lindley distribution and the results shows that Lindley distribution provide good parametric fit under progressive censoring scheme for some real life situations. Also, some of the recent work on progressive censoring include but not limited to Kumar et al. [15], Pak et al. [16] and Rastogi and Tripathi [17]. As far as we know, no one has described the EM algorithm for determining the MLEs of the parameters of the Poisson-Exponential distribution based on progressive type- II censoring scheme.

Estimation of the Parameters of the Reversed Generalized Logistic Distribution with Progressive Censoring Data

Estimation of the Parameters of the Reversed Generalized Logistic Distribution with Progressive Censoring Data

The reversed generalized logistic RGL distributions are very useful classes of densities as they posses a wide range of indices of skewness and kurtosis. This paper considers the estimation problem for the parameters of the RGL distribution based on progressive Type II censoring. The maximum likelihood method for RGL distribution yields equations that have to be solved numerically, even when the complete sample is available. By approximating the likelihood equations, we obtain explicit estimators which are in approximation to the MLEs. Using these approximate estimators as starting values, we obtain the MLEs using iterative method. We examine numerically MLEs estimators and the approximate estimators and show that the approximation provides estimators that are almost as efficient as MLEs. Also we show that the value of the MLEs decreases as the value of the shape parameter increases. An exact confidence interval and an exact joint confidence region for the parameters are constructed. Numerical example is presented in the methods proposed in this paper.

Modified Maximum Likelihood Estimation in Autoregressive Processes with Generalized Exponential Innovations

Modified Maximum Likelihood Estimation in Autoregressive Processes with Generalized Exponential Innovations

The outline of the paper is as follows. In Section 2 we define the regression linear model with autoregressive errors, where the underlying distribution of the innovations is a Generalized Exponential distribution. In Section 3 we propose the MML estimators as a powerful methodology to deal with ML estimators which are intractable in the case of a Generalized Exponential distribution. In Section 4 we study the asymptotic properties of the proposed estimators. The main advantages of the proposed estimators are discussed via simulation studies in Section 5. Finally discussions and observations appear in Section 6 of the proposed model and the specific nu- merical results, attaching an Appendix which displays the details of asymptotic results.

On a Less Cumbersome Method of Estimation of Parameters of Type III Generalized Logistic Distribution by Order Statistics

On a Less Cumbersome Method of Estimation of Parameters of Type III Generalized Logistic Distribution by Order Statistics

The simplicity of the logistic distribution and its importance as a growth curve have made it one of the most important statistical models. The shape of the logis- tic distribution (similar to that of the normal distribution) makes it simpler and also protable on suitable occasions to choose it as a model instead of the normal distribution. Pearl and Reed (1920, 1924), Schultz (1930) and Oliver (1982) ap- plied the logistic model as a growth model in human populations and in the study of the populations of some biological organisms. Some applications of logistic functions in bioassy problems were discussed by Berkson(1944) and Wilson and Worcester (1943). Other applications and signicant developments concerning the logistic distribution can be found in the book by Balakrishnan (1992). Balakrish- nan and Leung (1988) dened three types of generalized logistic distributions by compounding logistic distribution with some other well known models and named them as Type I, Type II and Type III generalized logistic distributions. Type III generalized logistic distribution was earlier derived by Gumbel (1944). In this ar- ticle, our main interest is to deal with estimation problems of Type III generalized logistic distribution.

Inference Based on k-Record Values from Generalized Exponential Distribution

Inference Based on k-Record Values from Generalized Exponential Distribution

Let { X i , i ≥ 1 } be a sequence of independent and identically distributed (iid) random variables having an absolutely continuous cumulative distribution function (cdf) F (x) and probability density function (pdf) f (x). An observation X j is called a lower record if X j < X i for every i < j. An analogous definition deals with upper record values. In a number of situations, only observations that exceed or only those that fall below the current extreme value are recorded. Examples include meteorology, hydrology, athletic events and mining. Interest in records has increased steadily over the years since Chan- dler’s (1952) formulation. Useful surveys are given in Ahsanullah (1995) and Arnold et al. (1998). Estimation of parameters using record values and prediction of future record values have been studied by several authors, for details see Balakrishnan and Chan (1998), Raqab (2002), and Sultan et al. (2002). Bayesian estimation and prediction for some life distributions based on record values have been considered by Ahamadi and Doostparast (2006).

ESTIMATION OF PARAMETERS AND RELIABILITY FUNCTION OF EXPONENTIATED EXPONENTIAL DISTRIBUTION: BAYESIAN APPROACH UNDER GENERAL ENTROPY LOSS FUNCTION

In this section, we shall compare the estimators obtained under GELF with corresponding Bayes estimators under SELF and their mle's. The comparisons are based on the simulated risks(average loss over sample space) under GELF and SELF both. The exact expressions for the risks can not be obtained, therefore the risks of the estimators are estimated on the basis of Monte-Carlo simulation study of 5000 samples. It may be noted that the risks of the estimators will be the function of n , r , m , c ,  ,  , t and c 1 . In order to

Partial Generalized Probability Weighted Moments for Exponentiated Exponential Distribution

Partial Generalized Probability Weighted Moments for Exponentiated Exponential Distribution

This article presents new method which is called partial generalized probability weighted moments for estimating the unknown parameters of distributions from censored samples. The PGPWMs will be used to estimate unknown parameters of EE distribution under doubly censored samples. Then, the PGPWMs estimators of the unknown parameters from left and right censored samples will be obtained as special cases. At the same time, the generalized probability weighted moments can be obtained as the special case from PGPWMs. To illustrate the properties of the new estimators, an extensive numerical study will be performed. Analysis of a real data set has been performed.
