The geometric exponential Poisson distribution
- 763 Downloads
Many if not most lifetime distributions are motivated only by mathematical interest. Here, a new three-parameter distribution motivated mainly by lifetime issues is introduced. Some properties of the new distribution including estimation procedures, univariate generalizations and bivariate generalizations are derived. Two real data applications are described to show superior performance versus some known lifetime models.
