*T*-Cauchy{

*Y*} family, is proposed using the

*T*-

*R*{

*Y*} framework. The family of distributions is generated using the quantile functions of uniform, exponential, log-logistic, logistic, extreme value, and Fréchet distributions. Several general properties of the

*T*-Cauchy{

*Y*} family are studied in detail including moments, mean deviations and Shannon’s entropy....

*α*-stable (pTAS) or sometimes also tempered one-sided

*α*-stable distributions dates back to Tweedie (1984) and Hougaard (1986) who discussed it in the context of frailty distribution in life table methods for heterogenous populations. The pTAS family generalizes the well-known gamma distribution and allows for heavier tails depending on the parameter

*α*. Because of this...
