A Note on a Generalization of the Exponentiated Pareto Distribution

A Note on a Generalization of the Exponentiated Pareto Distribution Abstract In this paper we introduce the so-called McDonald Exponentiated Pareto distribution. We provide a number of mathematical properties of this distribution and derive among others expressions for its moment-generating function, the r th moment, and the Renyi entropy. Finally, we present the likelihood equations to support the application of the McDonald Exponentiated Pareto distribution. The aim of the paper is to introduce an interesting distribution which is distinguished by high flexibility with respect to skewness and tail behavior. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Economic Quality Control de Gruyter

Abstract

Abstract In this paper we introduce the so-called McDonald Exponentiated Pareto distribution. We provide a number of mathematical properties of this distribution and derive among others expressions for its moment-generating function, the r th moment, and the Renyi entropy. Finally, we present the likelihood equations to support the application of the McDonald Exponentiated Pareto distribution. The aim of the paper is to introduce an interesting distribution which is distinguished by high flexibility with respect to skewness and tail behavior.
