ON TRUNCATED GENERALIZED CAUCHY DISTRIBUTION
by Saieed F. Ateya and Essam K. AL-Hussaini.
In this paper, we propose a truncated version of generalized
Cauchy distribution suggested by Rider(1957) in a special
setting. One possible use for the proposed model is in life-testing
where the domain of definition is not only non-negative but also
guarantees no failure before a given time (truncated parameter). The
parameters, reliability and failure rate functions are estimated
using the maximum likelihood and Bayes methods. The Bayes estimates
are obtained under the squared-error and liner exponential (LINEX)
loss functions. The computations have been carried out using the
Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm.
