On the general class of two-sided power distribution. (English) Zbl 1065.60011
Summary: J. R. van Dorp and S. Kotz [ibid. 32, 1703–1723 (2003; Zbl 1171.60315)] introduced a general class of two-sided power distributions. We provide several examples of this distribution by considering a nonnegative, nondecreasing differentiable function \(g\) on [0, 1] satisfying \(g(1)-g(0)=1\). For the considered distributions the maximum likelihood estimation and moment estimation of parameters are obtained. Moments, moment generating functions, and relative entropy are also derived.
