A Characterization of Uniform Distribution

Joanna Chachulska (2005)

Bulletin of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Mathematics

Is the Lebesgue measure on [0,1]² a unique product measure on [0,1]² which is transformed again into a product measure on [0,1]² by the mapping ψ(x,y) = (x,(x+y)mod 1))? Here a somewhat stronger version of this problem in a probabilistic framework is answered. It is shown that for independent and identically distributed random variables X and Y constancy of the conditional expectations of X+Y-I(X+Y > 1) and its square given X identifies uniform distribution either absolutely continuous or discrete....

A model for proportions with medical applications

Saralees Nadarajah (2007)

Applicationes Mathematicae

Data that are proportions arise most frequently in biomedical research. In this paper, the exact distributions of R = X + Y and W = X/(X+Y) and the corresponding moment properties are derived when X and Y are proportions and arise from the most flexible bivariate beta distribution known to date. The associated estimation procedures are developed. Finally, two medical data sets are used to illustrate possible applications.

A note on biconic copulas

Fabrizio Durante, Juan Fernández-Sánchez (2011)


We describe a class of bivariate copulas having a fixed diagonal section. The obtained class contains both the Fréchet upper and lower bounds and it allows to describe non-trivial tail dependence coefficients along both the diagonals of the unit square.
