In this article, we propose an extension of this family through the so-called “Topp-Leone strategy”, aiming to improve its overall flexibility by adding a shape parameter. The main objective is to offer original distributions with modifiable properties, from which adaptive and pliant statistical models can be derived. For the new family, these aspects are illustrated by the means of comprehensive mathematical and numerical results. In particular, we emphasize a special distribution with three parameters based on the… More >
