Main Article Content


In this article, we introduce a new generalized family of Esscher transformed Laplace distribution, namely the Kumaraswamy Esscher transformed Laplace distribution. We study the various properties of the distribution including the survival function, hazard rate function, cumulative hazard rate function and reverse hazard rate function. The parameters of the distribution are estimated using the maximum likelihood method of estimation. A real application of this distribution on breaking stress of carbon fibres is also considered. Further, we introduce and study the exponentiated and transmuted exponentiated Kumaraswamy Esscher transformed Laplace distributions.
