Two special cases of the formulation distribution including negative binomial- Garima (NB-G) and negative binomial-size biased Garima (NB-SBG) are obtained by setting the specified parameter. Some statistical properties such as the factorial moments, the first four moments, variance and skewness have also been derived. Parameter estimation is implemented using maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) and real data sets are discussed to demonstrate the usefulness and applicability of the proposed distribution.</p> Winai Bodhisuwan, Pornpop Saengthong Copyright (c) 2020 Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/3013 Thu, 27 Feb 2020 00:00:00 +0500 Bayesian Estimates Based On Record Values Under Weighted LINEX Loss Function https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/2854 <p>In this paper, we developed linear exponential (LINEX) loss function by emerging weights to produce weighted linear exponential (WLINEX) loss function. Then we utilized WLINEX to derive scale parameter and reliability function of the Weibull distribution based on record values when the shape parameter is known. After, we estimated scale parameter and reliability function of Weibull distribution by using maximum likelihood (ML) estimation and by several Bayes estimations. &nbsp;The Bayes estimates were obtained with respect to symmetric loss function (squared error loss (SEL)), asymmetric loss function (LINEX) and asymmetric loss function (WLINEX). The ML and the different Bayes estimates are compared via a Monte Carlo simulation study. The result of simulation mentioned that the proposed WLINEX loss function is promising and can be used in real environment especially at the case of underestimate where it revealed better performance than LINEX loss function for estimating scale parameter.</p> Fuad Al-Duais, Mohammed Alhagyan Copyright (c) 2020 Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/2854 Thu, 27 Feb 2020 00:00:00 +0500 Marshall-Olkin Generalized Pareto Distribution: Bayesian and Non Bayesian Estimation https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/2935 <p class="Abstract"><span lang="EN-GB">A new generalization of generalized Pareto Distribution is obtained using the generator Marshall-Olkin distribution (1997). The new distribution MOGP is more flexible and can be used to model non-monotonic failure rate functions. MOGP includes six different sub models: Generalized Pareto, Exponential, Uniform, Pareto type I, Marshall-Olkin Pareto and Marshall-Olkin exponential distribution. We consider different estimation procedures for estimating the model parameters, namely: Maximum likelihood estimator, Maximum product spacing, Least square method, weighted least square method and Bayesian Method. The Bayesian Method is considered under quadratic loss function and Linex loss function. Simulation analysis using MCMC technique is performed to compare between the proposed point estimation methods. The usefulness of MOGP is illustrated by means of real data set, which shows that this generalization is better fit than Pareto, GP and MOP distributions.</span></p> Hanan Haj AHmad, Ehab Almetwally Copyright (c) 2020 Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/2935 Thu, 27 Feb 2020 22:23:49 +0500 Extended Reciprocal Rayleigh Distribution: Copula, Properties and Real Data Modeling https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/3112 <strong>Abstract:</strong> A new extension of the reciprocal Rayleigh distribution is introduced. Simple type copula-based construction is presented for deriving and many bivariate and multivariate type distributions of the reciprocal Rayleigh model. The new reciprocal Rayleigh model generalizes another three reciprocal Rayleigh distributions. The performance of the estimation method is assessed using a graphical simulation study. The new model is better than some other important competitive models in modeling different real data sets.

Kriging models can be used as fast running surrogate models for computationally expensive computer codes. Kriging models can be built using different methods, the maximum likelihood estimation method and the leave-one-out cross validation method. The objective of this paper is to evaluate and compare these different methods for building kriging models. These evaluation and comparison are achieved via some measures that test the assumptions that are used in building kriging models. We apply kriging models that are built based on the two different methods on a real high dimensional example of a computer code. We demonstrate our evaluation and comparison through some measures on this real computer code.

Shaw and Buckley(2007), first apply this concept and introduced quadratic transmuted family of distributions. In this article, we have presented a review about the transmuted families of distributions. We have also listed the transmuted distributions, available in the literature along with some concluding remarks.</p> Md.

(2016) and investigated some of its related distributions. The moments and distributional properties of the proposed distribution are also discussed. Also, the appropriateness of this distribution are checked by performing the data fitting experiment and comparing the values of Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) and Bayesian Information Criterion (BIC) with the values of some other known distributions. Likelihood ratio test is used for discriminating between normal and the proposed distributions.</p> Sricharan Shah, Subrata Chakraborty, Partha Jyoti Hazarika, M Masoom Ali Copyright (c) 2020 Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/3080 Fri, 06 Mar 2020 17:35:45 +0500 Power Comparisons of Five Most Commonly Used Autocorrelation Tests https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/2691 <p>In regression analysis, autocorrelation of the error terms violates the ordinary least squares assumption that the error terms are uncorrelated. The consequence is that the estimates of coefficients and their standard errors will be wrong if the autocorrelation is ignored. There are many tests for autocorrelation, we want to know which test is more powerful. We use Monte Carlo methods to compare the power of five most commonly used tests for autocorrlation, namely Durbin-Watson, Breusch-Godfrey, Box–Pierce, Ljung Box, and Runs tests in two different linear regression models. The results indicate the Durbin-Watson test performs better in the regression model without lagged dependent variable, although the advantage over the other tests reduce with increasing autocorrelation and sample sizes. For the model with lagged dependent variable, the Breusch-Godfrey test is generally superior to the other tests.<br />R code for Power Comparison of the Five Autocorrelation Tests is provided.</p> Stanislaus S.

Therefore, in this article we have proposed a new and simple structure model, named a zero truncated discrete Lindley distribution. The<br>distribution contains some submodels and represents a two-component mixture of a zero truncated geometric distribution and a zero truncated negative binomial distribution with certain parameters. Several properties of the distribution are obtained such as mean residual life function, probability generating function, factorial moments, negative moments, moments of residual life function, Bonferroni and Lorenz curves, estimation of parameters, Shannon and Renyi entropies, order statistics with the asymptotic distribution of their extremes and range, a characterization, stochastic ordering and stress-strength parameter. Moreover, the collective risk model is discussed by considering the<br>proposed distribution as primary distribution and exponential and Erlang distributions as secondary ones. Test and evaluation statistics as well as three real data applications are considered to assess the peformance of the distribution among the most frequently zero truncated discrete probability models.</p> Tassaddaq Hussain Kiani Copyright (c) 2020 Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/2133 Fri, 06 Mar 2020 18:07:35 +0500 Impact of Different Repetitive Sampling Schemes on the Performance of X-bar Control Chart https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/1876 <p>Repetitive sampling has been found very popular in improving the control chart techniques for last couple of years. In repetitive sampling based control charts, there are two additional control limits inside the usual upper control limit (UCL) and lower control limit (LCL). If any subgroup crosses these limits but remain inside outer limits, it is deferred and replaced with another selection. Process is said to be out of control if any subgroup falls outside UCL/LCL. In this article, the technique has been modified by introducing a relation between outer and inner control limits in terms of a ratio and need of this modification has also been justified by highlighting a gap in the existing technique. By using Monte Carlo simulation, several results have been generated relevant to different sample sizes and introduced ratios. The results have been described with the help of average run length (ARL) tables that how the efficiency of control chart is effected by using different ratios. The modification in the technique also provides variety of alternatives within the scope of repetitive based control charts. All the discussed options have summarized to one table to see that how the control limits under this technique behave and impact on detecting shifts in the process average. The schemes have been interpreted in the light of above ratio and their comparison has been described under different sample sizes that facilitate the user to select most appropriate scheme for a desired process control. An example has been included by choosing one of the proposed schemes to show the application and performance of the proposed control chart in a manufacturing process.&nbsp;</p> Muhammad Anwar Mughal, Muhammad Azam, Muhammad Aslam Copyright (c) 2020 Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/1876 Fri, 06 Mar 2020 18:30:27 +0500 Transient Analysis of M[X1],M[X2]/G1,G2/1 retrial queueing system with priority services, working breakdown, start up/close down time, Bernoulli vacation, reneging and balking https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/2181 <p>This paper considers&nbsp; M[X1],M[X2]/G1,G2/1&nbsp;general retrial queueing system with priority services. Two types of customers from different classes arrive at the system in different independent compound Poisson processes. The server follows the pre-emptive priority rule subject to working breakdown, startup/closedown time and Bernoulli vacation with general (arbitrary) vacation periods. After completing the service, if there are no priority customers present in the system the server may go for a vacation or close down the system. On completion of the close down, the server needs some time to set up the system. The priority customers who find the server busy are queued in the system. A low-priority customer who find the server busy are routed to a retrial (orbit) queue that attempts to get the service. The system may breakdown at any point of time when it is in operation. However, when the system fails, instead of stopping service completely, the service is continued only to the high priority customers at a slower rate. We consider balking to occur to the low priority customer while the server is busy or idle, and reneging to occur at the high priority customers during server’s vacation, start up/close down time. Using the supplementary variable technique, we derive the joint distribution of the server state and the number of customers in the system. Finally, some performance measures and numerical examples are presented.</p> Govindhan Ayyappan, Udayageetha J Copyright (c) 2020 Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://pjsor.com/pjsor/article/view/2181 Fri, 06 Mar 2020 18:47:20 +0500
