A New Extension of the Generalized Half Logistic Distribution with Applications to Real Data
AbstractIn this paper, we introduced a new three-parameter probability model called Poisson generalized half logistic (PoiGHL). The new model possesses an increasing, decreasing, unimodal and bathtub failure rates depending on the parameters. The relationship of PoiGHL with the exponentiated Weibull Poisson (EWP), Poisson exponentiated Erlang-truncated exponential (PEETE), and Poisson generalized Gompertz (PGG) model is discussed. We also characterized the PoiGHL sub model, i.e the half logistic Poisson (HLP), based on certain functions of a random variable by truncated moments. Several mathematical and statistical properties of the PoiGHL are investigated such as moments, mean deviations, Bonferroni and Lorenz curves, order statistics, Shannon and Renyi entropy, Kullback-Leibler divergence, moments of residual life, and probability weighted moments. Estimation of the model parameters was achieved by maximum likelihood technique and assessed by simulation studies. The stress-strength analysis was discussed in detail based on maximum likelihood estimation (MLE), we derived the asymptotic confidence interval of
