The Kumaraswamy Weibull Geometric Distribution with Applications


‎Weibull Geometric distribution, Data Analysis, Moments, Entropy, Characterizations


‎In this work‎, ‎we study the kumaraswamy weibull geometric ($Kw-WG$) distribution which includes as special cases‎, ‎several models such as the kumaraswamy weibull distribution‎, ‎kumaraswamy exponential distribution‎, ‎weibull geometric distribution‎, ‎exponential geometric distribution‎, ‎to name a few‎. ‎This distribution was monotone and non-monotone hazard rate functions‎, ‎which are useful in lifetime data analysis and reliability‎. ‎We derive some basic properties of the $Kw-WG$ distribution including noncentral $r$th‎-moments, ‎skewness‎, ‎kurtosis‎, ‎generating functions‎, ‎mean deviations‎, ‎mean residual life‎, ‎entropy‎, ‎order statistics and certain characterizations of our distribution‎. ‎The method of maximum likelihood is used for estimating the model parameters and a simulation study to investigate the behavior of this estimation is presented‎. ‎Finally‎, ‎an application of the new distribution and its comparison with recent flexible generalization of weibull distribution is illustrated via two real data sets‎.
