A Useful Extension of the Inverse Exponential Distribution
This chapter explores the three-parameter Weibull Inverse Exponential distribution. The various and basic structural properties of the distribution are defined and established. Applications to real life datasets were provided and the unknown model parameters were estimated using the maximum likelihood estimation method. The results show that the Weibull Inverse Exponential distribution is a viable alternative to its counterpart distribution(s) based on the selection criteria used.
