    The multivariate slash and skew-slash student t distributions

    In this article, we introduce the multivariate slash and skew-slash t distributions which provide alternative choices in simulating and fitting skewed and heavy tailed data. We study their relationships with othe...

    Failure time regression with continuous informative auxiliary covariates

    In this paper we use Cox’s regression model to fit failure time data with continuous informative auxiliary variables in the presence of a validation subsample. We first estimate the induced relative risk funct...

    The Kumaraswamy-geometric distribution

    In this paper, the Kumaraswamy-geometric distribution, which is a member of the T-geometric family of discrete distributions is defined and studied. Some properties of the distribution such as moments, probabilit...

    Geometric disintegration and star-shaped distributions

    Geometric and stochastic representations are derived for the big class of p-generalized elliptically contoured distributions, and (generalizing Cavalieri’s and Torricelli’s method of indivisibles in a non-Euclide...

    On the distribution theory of over-dispersion

    An overview of the evolution of probability models for over-dispersion is given looking at their origins, motivation, first main contributions, important milestones and applications. A specific class of models...

    Bivariate beta-generated distributions with applications to well-being data

    The class of beta-generated distributions (Commun. Stat. Theory Methods 31:497–512, 2002; TEST 13:1–43, 2004) has received a lot of attention in the last years. In this paper, three new classes of bivariate be...

  7. Review

    Univariate and multivariate Pareto models

    The Pareto distribution has long been recognized as a suitable model for many non-negative socio-economic variables. Univariate and multivariate variations abound. Some unification is possible by representing ...

    Bayesian reference analysis for exponential power regression models

    We develop Bayesian reference analyses for linear regression models when the errors follow an exponential power distribution. Specifically, we obtain explicit expressions for reference priors for all the six p...

    On generating T-X family of distributions using quantile functions

    The cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the T-X family is given by R{W(F(x))}, where R is the CDF of a random variable T, F is the CDF of X and W is an increasing function defined on [0, 1] having the suppo...
