Some Characterizations of the Log-Logistic Distribution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The log-logistic distribution is a right skewed distribution of a random variable whose logarithm has the logistic distribution. In this paper, characterizations based on truncated moments, functions of order statistics and record values are obtained. Also, limiting distributions for the extreme order statistics are studied.
