Characterizations of the transmuted inverse Weibull distribution

Muhammad Shuaib Khan, Robert King, Irene Hudson


We characterise the transmuted inverse Weibull distribution and compare it to many other generalizations of the two-parameter inverse Weibull distribution using the likelihood ratio test. Explicit expressions are derived for the quantile, moment generating function, entropies, mean deviation and order statistics. A bladder cancer application is presented to illustrate the proposed transmuted inverse Weibull distribution.
