Title: L-Moments and TL - Moments Estimation and Recurrence Relations for Moments of Generalized Order Statistics from Lindley Distribution
Abstract of Talk
Lindley distribution is proposed for modeling lifetime data. Its hazard rate properties are better than the gamma, lognormal and the Weibull distributions. The aim of the paper is to obtain $L$-moments and $TL$-moments of Lindley distribution and used them to find the $L$-moments and $TL$-moments estimator of the parameter of the Lindley distribution. Also we have obtained the recurrence relations for moments of generalized order statistics arising from Lindely distribution which enable one to obtain all the single, double (product) moments in a simple recursive manner from which one can obtain moments from ordinary order statistics and record values as its special case. \vskip5pt Keywords: Order Statistics, L-moments, TL-moments, Single moments, Product moments, distribution.Recurrence relations,Generalized order statistics,Lindley
