In recent decades, the number of theoretical and applied statistical works related to symmetric distributions has proliferated; the majority of these works are based on the Azzalini's scheme. This strategy uses a symmetric distribution as baseline, then a parameter is added to the standard model that controls the asymmetry of the new family of probability distributions. The most widespread and popular model is the one based on the normal distribution that gives rise to the skew normal distribution.
In this Special Issue on symmetrical distributions, researchers are invited to contribute original research papers and case studies related to this topic. Submissions that extend the Azzalini's scheme or propose alternatives, both for univariate and multivariate, continuous and discrete distributions are welcome. Researchers are also invited to offer theoretical and applied proposals that have connection with this subject. Applications in the fields of economics (inflation forecasting, stochastic frontier models, insurance, etc.), environmental sciences (climate changes, for instance), biometrics, engineering (reliability, classification of satellite image, etc.), and others fields are welcome.
This Special Issue is open to both original research articles and review articles, both theoretical and applied, within the area of symmetric and asymmetric distributions.
