TL;DR: In this paper, a new probability distribution, the xgamma distribution, is proposed and studied, which is generated as a special finite mixture of exponential and gamma distributions and hence the name proposed.
Abstract: A new probability distribution, the xgamma distribution, is proposed and studied. The distribution is generated as a special finite mixture of exponential and gamma distributions and hence the name proposed. Various mathematical, structural, and survival properties of the xgamma distribution are derived, and it is found that in many cases the xgamma has more flexibility than the exponential distribution. To evaluate the comparative behavior, stochastic ordering of the distribution is studied. To estimate the model parameter, the method of moment and the method of maximum likelihood estimation are proposed. A simulation algorithm to generate random samples from the xgamma distribution is indicated along with a simulation study. A real life dataset on the remission times of patients receiving an analgesic is analyzed, and it is found that the xgamma model provides better fit to the data as compared to the exponential model.
TL;DR: In this paper, a generalized process capability index, defined as the ratio of proportion of specification conformance (or, process yield) to proportion of desired conformance, has been developed.
Abstract: A generalized process capability index, defined as the ratio of proportion of specification conformance (or, process yield) to proportion of desired (or, natural) conformance, has been developed. Almost all the process capabilities defined in the literature are directly or indirectly associated with this generalized index. Normal as well as non-normal and continuous as well as discrete random variables could be covered by this new index. It can also be assessed under either unilateral or bilateral specifications. We deal with the proposed index in case of normal, exponential and Poisson processes. Under each distributional assumption, point estimators for the proposed index are suggested and compared through simulation study. Two real-world applications have been discussed using the proposed index.
TL;DR: In this article, a conditional measure of uncertainty based on past entropy has been defined, which has helped in defining a new stochastic order and an ageing class, and the properties of the ageing class are also studied.
Abstract: Measure of uncertainty in past lifetime distribution plays an important role in the context of Information Theory, Forensic Science and other related fields. In this paper we provide characterizations of quite a few continuous and discrete distributions based on certain functional relationships among past entropy, reversed hazard rate and expected inactivity time. Based on past entropy, a conditional measure of uncertainty has been defined, which has helped in defining a new stochastic order and an ageing class. The properties of the stochastic order and those of the ageing class are also studied here.
TL;DR: Bootstrap confidence intervals of the generalized process capability index (GPCI) proposed by Maiti et al. are studied through simulation, when the underlying distributions are Lindley and Power Lindley distributions.
Abstract: One of the indicators for evaluating the capability of a process is the process capability index. In this article bootstrap confidence intervals of generalized process capability index (GPCI) proposed by Maiti et al. (2010) are studied through simulation when the underlying distributions are Lindley and Power Lindley distributions. Maximum likelihood method is used to estimate the parameters of the models. Three bootstrap confidence intervals namely, standard bootstrap (SB), percentile bootstrap (PB) and bias corrected percentile bootstrap (BCPB) are considered for obtaining confidence intervals of GPCI. A Monte Carlo simulation has been used to investigate the estimated coverage probabilities and average width of the bootstrap confidence intervals. Simulation results show that the estimated coverage probabilities of the percentile bootstrap confidence interval and the bias-corrected percentile bootstrap confidence interval get closer to the nominal confidence level than those of the standard boot...

Our book servers saves in multiple locations, allowing you to get the most less latency time to download any of our books like this one. Merely said, the table of integrals series and products is universally compatible with any devices to read.
TL;DR: Alho and Spencer as discussed by the authors published a book on statistical and mathematical demography, focusing on mature population models, the particular focus of the new author (see, e.g., Caswell 2000).
Abstract: Here are two books on a topic new to Technometrics: statistical and mathematical demography. The first author of Applied Mathematical Demography wrote the first two editions of this book alone. The second edition was published in 1985. Professor Keyfritz noted in the Preface (p. vii) that at age 90 he had no interest in doing another edition; however, the publisher encouraged him to find a coauthor. The result is an additional focus for the book in the world of biology that makes it much more relevant for the sciences. The book is now part of the publisher’s series on Statistics for Biology and Health. Much of it, of course, focuses on the many aspects of human populations. The new material focuses on mature population models, the particular focus of the new author (see, e.g., Caswell 2000). As one might expect from a book that was originally written in the 1970s, it does not include a lot of information on statistical computing. The new book by Alho and Spencer is focused on putting a better emphasis on statistics in the discipline of demography (Preface, p. vii). It is part of the publisher’s Series in Statistics. The authors are both statisticians, so the focus is on statistics as used for demographic problems. The authors are targeting human applications, so their perspective on science does not extend any further than epidemiology. The book actually strikes a good balance between statistical tools and demographic applications. The authors use the first two chapters to teach statisticians about the concepts of demography. The next four chapters are very similar to the statistics content found in introductory books on survival analysis, such as the recent book by Kleinbaum and Klein (2005), reported by Ziegel (2006). The next three chapters are focused on various aspects of forecasting demographic rates. The book concludes with chapters focusing on three areas of applications: errors in census numbers, financial applications, and small-area estimates.

TL;DR: In this paper, a special purpose test-rig was built that allowed for accelerated natural degradation of a bearing race, and it was concluded that sub-surface initiation and subsequent crack propagation can be detected using a range of data analysis techniques on AE signals generated from natural degrading bearings.
Abstract: Rolling element bearings are the most common cause of rotating machinery failure. Over the past 20 years, Acoustic Emission (AE) technology has evolved as a significant opportunity to monitor and diagnose the mechanical integrity of rolling element bearings. This paper presents results of an investigation to assess the potential of the Acoustic Emission (AE) technology for detecting and locating natural defects in rolling element bearings. To undertake this task a special purpose test-rig was built that allowed for accelerated natural degradation of a bearing race. It is concluded that sub-surface initiation and subsequent crack propagation can be detected using a range of data analysis techniques on AE’s generated from natural degrading bearings. The paper also investigates the source characterisation of AE signals associated with a defective bearing whilst in operation. This study also attempted to identify the size of a natural defect on bearings using AE technology. In conclusion, the results from this investigation show that whilst measurements on operational bearings cannot be achieved as described in this paper, the method of identifying the onset of crack propagation can be employed as a quality control tool for bearing manufacturers particularly for testing bearing material homogeneity.
