Exponentiated Akash distribution and its applications


Emmanuel W. Okereke and Onyebuchi R. Uwaeme

YEAR: 2018


In this study, a new distribution called Exponentiated Akash distribution, which is the extension of the one-parameter Akash distribution, is derived using the exponentiation technique. Statistical properties, such as; moments, moment generating function, reliability function, hazard function, Rényi entropy and order statistics of the distribution were obtained. A discussion was made based on the maximum likelihood procedure of finding estimates of parameters of the distribution. Our numerical illustrations substantiate the applicability, flexibility and the tendency of the distribution to provide better fits to certain sets of data than competing distributions.
