Characterization properties of the log-normal distribution obtained with the help of divergence measures
The aim of this work is to provide some characterization properties of the log-normal distribution with the help of divergence measures between a probability density function f and its r-size weighted counterpart fr. The characterization can be expressed in terms the Kullback–Leibler, the Rényi or the Cressie and Read divergence measures.
