Recently, Asimit et al. have used an EM algorithm to estimate the parameters of Marshall–Olkin bivariate Pareto distribution with location and scale. The distribution has seven parameters. We describe different other variations of the EM algorithm. Numerical simulation is performed to identify the best algorithm among them. A real-life data analysis is also shown for illustrative purposes.
In this paper we consider the Marshall–Olkin bivariate Weibull distribution. The Marshall–Olkin bivariate Weibull distribution is a singular distribution, whose both the marginals are univariate Weibull distributions. This is a generalization of the Marshall–Olkin bivariate exponential distribution. The cumulative joint distribution of the Marshall–Olkin bivariate Weibull distribution is a mixture...
