Alpha Power Lomax Distribution, Maximum Likelihood Estimation, Renyi Entropies, Stress–Strength Reliability and Order Statistics


In this paper, we refer to the new distribution an alpha power Lomax distribution. Various properties of the proposed distribution are obtained including mode, quantiles, entropies, and order statistics are obtained. Parameters of the proposed distribution are estimated using maximum likelihood, ordinary least squares and weighted least squares. Simulation study is conducted to compare between estimators.
