  • Abstract

    In this study, we proposed and studied the alpha power transformed quasi Lindley distribution. The new model has three sub models, namely, Lindley, quasi Lindley and alpha power transformed Lindley distributions. The pdf, hazard rate function, quantile function, mo-ments, Rényi entropy, stochastic ordering and distributions of order statistics were derived based on the new model. The maximum like-lihood method of estimating the model parameters was considered. A simulation study was conducted to investigate the behavior of the maximum likelihood estimates. It was observed that the average bias and mean squared error decreased as the sample size increased. By analyzing a real data set, we illustrated the usefulness of the proposed distribution.
