Pp. 115-148 (34)

Gauss M. Cordeiro, Rodrigo B. Silva and Abraão D. C. Nascimento


In this chapter, three special cases of the Kumaraswamy generalized family of distributions are presented. Some mathematical characteristics are provided such as the moments and generating function. An expanded expression for the density function and some special cases are presented. For illustrative purposes, practical examples of the KwG models are reported by means of applications to empirical data.
