Some General Characterizations of the Bivariate Gumbel Distribution and the Bivariate Lomax Distribution Based on Truncated Expectations


  • Asadi, Majid


Recently attempts have been made to characterize probability distributions via truncated expectations in both univariate and multivariate cases. In this paper we will use a well known theorem of Lau and Rao (1982) to obtain some characterization results, based on the truncated expectations of a functionh, for the bivariate Gumbel distribution, a bivariate Lomax distribution, and a bivariate power distribution. The results of the paper subsume some earlier results appearing in the literature.
