Length biased weighted residual inaccuracy measure.

*(English)*Zbl 1301.62104Summary: In the present communication we introduce a length biased weighted residual inaccuracy measure between two residual lifetime distributions over the interval \((t,\infty)\). Based on proportional hazard model (PHM), a characterization problem for the weighted residual inaccuracy measure has been studied. A lower bound to the weighted residual inaccuracy measure has also been derived.
