On Stochastic Orders for Sums of Independent Random Variables

Abstract

In this paper, it is shown that a convolution of uniform distributions (a) is more dispersed and (b) has a smaller hazard rate when the scale parameters of the uniform distributions are more dispersed in the sense of majorization. It is also shown that a convolution of gamma distributions with a common shape parameter greater than 1 is larger in (a) likelihood ratio order and (b) dispersive order when the scale parameters are more dispersed in the sense of majorization.
