Power Series Distribution

A discrete random variable X is said to have a generalised power series distribution if its probability function is given by,
 

 
where f(θ) is a generating function and  f(θ) is positive finite and diferentiable. Power series distribution is a discrete probability distribution
.

Properties of Power series distribution

Some special properties of power series distribution are given-
  • If θ=p/(1-p), f(θ)=(1+θ)^n and s={1,2,3,…,n), a set of (n+1) non-negative integers then the power series distribution is tends to binomial distribution
    .
  • If f(θ)=e^θ and s={0,1,2,3,…,∞} then the distribution tends to poisson distribution.
  • If θ=p/(1-p), f(θ)=(1+θ)^-n and s={0,1,2,3,…,∞), then the power series distribution tends to negative binomial distribution.
  • If f(θ)=-log(1-θ) and s={1,2,….}, then the power series distribution tends to logarthmic distribution.

Spread the love          In statistics, probability distributions are very important measure which related to the random variable and statistical data. Every data patern follows a probability distribution. Continuous data follow the continuous distribution and discrete data follow the discrete distributions. According to wikipedia, “In probability theory and statistics, a probability distribution is the mathematical function that […]

Spread the love          In probabilistic statistics, the gamma distribution is a two-parameter family of continuous probability distributions which is widely used in different sectors. The exponential distribution, Erlang distribution, and chi-square distribution are special cases of it.

Spread the love          In probabilistic statistics, the exponential distribution is the probability distribution of the time between events in a Poisson point process where events occur continuously and independently at a constant average rate. It is a special case of the gamma distribution.   Definition A continuous random variable X is said to have an exponential […]
