Title: A class of distributions with linear mean residual quantile function and it's generalizations
Abstract of Talk
In the present paper, we introduce and study a class of distributions that has linear mean residual quantile function. Various distributional properties and reliability characteristics of the class are studied. Some characterizations of the class of distributions are presented. We then present generalizations of this class of distributions using the relationship between various quantile based reliability measures. The method of L-moments is employed to estimate parameters of the class of distributions. Finally, we apply the proposed class of distributions to a real data set.
