Generalized Weibull Distributions
The Weibull distribution has been one of the most cited lifetime distributions in reliability engineering. Over the last decade, many generalizations and extensions of the Weibull have been proposed in order to provide more flexibility than the traditional version when it comes to modeling lifetime data in diverse fields. This book offers an update on these developments, presenting the essential properties of each model. Several plots of density and hazard rate functions are also included, and a brief outline of known application(s) for each model is also given. Chin-Diew Lai is a Professor of Statistics at Massey University, New Zealand. Dr Lai has published over 100 research articles and four monographs, including two published by Springer: 'Stochastic Ageing and Dependence for Reliability' co-authored by M Xie, and 'Continuous Bivariate Distributions,' 2nd edition, co-authored by N Balakrishnan.
