The McDonald Modified Weibull Distribution: Properties and Applications
Merovci, Faton; Elbatal, Ibrahim;
Subject: Statistics - Methodology
A six parameter distribution so-called the McDonald modified Weibull distribution is defined and studied. The new distribution contains, as special submodels, several important distributions discussed in the literature, such as the beta modified Weibull, Kumaraswamy mod... View more
