A characteriyation of the Gamma distribution in terms of the $k$-th conditional moment presented in this paper extends the result of Shunji Osaki and Xin-xiang Li (1988).

A new weighted version of the Gompertz distribution is introduced. It is noted that the model represents a mixture of classical Gompertz and second upper record value of Gompertz densities, and using a certain transformation it gives a new version of the two-parameter Lindley distribution. The model can be also regarded as a dual member of the log-Lindley-$X$ family. Various properties of the model are obtained, including hazard rate function, moments, moment generating function, quantile function,...

This contribution introduces the marginal problem, where marginals are not given precisely, but belong to some convex sets given by systems of intervals. Conditions, under which the maximum entropy solution of this problem can be obtained via classical methods using maximum entropy representatives of these convex sets, are presented. Two counterexamples illustrate the fact, that this property is not generally satisfied. Some ideas of an alternative approach are presented at the end of the paper.

The aim of this paper is to propose a new approach to probability density function (PDF) estimation which is based on the fuzzy transform (F-transform) introduced by Perfilieva in [10]. Firstly, a smoothing filter based on the combination of the discrete direct and continuous inverse F-transform is introduced and some of the basic properties are investigated. Next, an alternative approach to PDF estimation based on the proposed smoothing filter is established and compared with the most used method...

We describe quantization designs which lead to asymptotically and order optimal functional quantizers for Gaussian processes in a Hilbert space setting. Regular variation of the eigenvalues of the covariance operator plays a crucial role to achieve these rates. For the development of a constructive quantization scheme we rely on the knowledge of the eigenvectors of the covariance operator in order to transform the problem into a finite dimensional quantization problem of normal distributions. ...

In this paper, we study basic properties of symmetric stable random vectors for which the spectral measure is a copula, i.e., a distribution having uniformly distributed marginals.

We give characterizations of the uniform distribution in terms of moments of order statistics when the sample size is random. Special cases of a random sample size (logarithmic series, geometrical, binomial, negative binomial, and Poisson distribution) are also considered.

Compositional models are used to construct probability distributions from lower-order probability distributions. On the other hand, Bayesian models are used to represent probability distributions that factorize according to acyclic digraphs. We introduce a class of models, called recursive factorization models, to represent probability distributions that recursively factorize according to sequences of sets of variables, and prove that they have the same representation power as both compositional...

We consider partial orderings for stochastic processes induced by expectations of convex or increasing convex (concave or increasing concave) functionals. We prove that these orderings are implied by the analogous finite dimensional orderings.

Se analizan los conceptos de función de distribución propensa, neutra y resistente a producir datos atípicos dependiendo del comportamiento asintótico de la diferencia y la razón de los dos extremos superiores.Posteriormente se caracterizan las primeras definiciones con propiedades de la cola derecha de la función de distribución.

We generalize Jiroušek’s (right) composition operator in such a way that it can be applied to distribution functions with values in a “semifield“, and introduce (parenthesized) compositional expressions, which in some sense generalize Jiroušek’s “generating sequences” of compositional models. We say that two compositional expressions are equivalent if their evaluations always produce the same results whenever they are defined. Our first result is that a set system $\mathscr{H}$ is star-like with centre $X$ if...
