Bayesian Prediction for Order Statistics from a General Class of Distributions Based on Left Type-II Censored Data

M. M. Mohie El-Din, Y. Abdel-Aty, A. R. Shafay


In this paper, we consider a general form for the underlying distribution and a general conjugate prior. A general procedure is described to determine one-sample Bayesian prediction intervals for unknown lifetimes based on an observed left Type-II censored data. For the illustration of the developed results, the inverse exponential and inverse Rayleigh distributions are used as examples. Finally, some numerical results are presented to illustrate allthe inferential results developed here.

Hence, we like to inform that on the basis of earlier indexing, we can’t predict the today or future indexing policy of third party (i.e. indexing agencies) as they have right to discontinue any journal at any time without prior information to the journal. So, please neither sends any question nor expects any answer from us on the behalf of third party i.e. indexing agencies.Hence, we will not issue any certificate or letter for indexing issue. Our role is just to provide the online access to them. So we do properly this and one can visit indexing agencies website to get the authentic information.
