Title: A contaminated extended Weibull distribution and its applications
Authors: Boris Choy - University of Sydney (Australia) [presenting]
Abstract: An extension of the class of contaminated Weibull distribution for statistical modelling is proposed. The extra parameter in the proposed distribution allows for more flexibility in the estimation of moments and the modelling of the tail behaviour. The properties of the distribution are presented and compared with the existing contaminated Weibull distribution. Bayesian simulation-based methods will be used for statistical inference. We shall demonstrate the adequacy of the proposed distribution in modelling positively-valued data in various applications.
