X-exponential-G Family of Distributions With Applications

  •  Shahid Mohammad    


A new family of continuous distributions called the X-exponential-G (XE-G) family is proposed. Explicit expressions are derived for the ordinary and incomplete moments, generating functions, mean deviation about the mean and median, Shannon and R\'{e}nyi entropies, and order statistics of this new family. Estimation of the parameters of the new family is done using the method of maximum likelihood. Assessment of the performance of the maximum likelihood estimates is carried out through a simulation study using the quantile function of the XE-G distribution. The usefulness of this new family is illustrated by modeling two real datasets.
