Bayesian prediction of k-record values based on progressively censored data from exponential distribution

Journal of Statistical Computation and Simulation (Impact Factor: 0.64). 01/2012; 82(1):51-62. DOI: 10.1080/00949655.2010.526609


In this paper, based on a progressively Type-II right censored sample, we discuss the prediction of k-record values from a future sequence. By considering the parent distribution as exponential, we derive Bayesian prediction intervals as well as Bayesian point predictors for k-record values from a future sequence based on an observed progressively Type-II right censored sample. The corresponding results for ordinary Type-II censored sample and the usual order statistics are then deduced as special cases. A real data set concerning the breakdown times of an insulating fluid in an accelerated life-test is used for illustrating all the results developed here.

    ABSTRACT: Prediction of a future observation on the basis of currently observed data is demanded in many theoretical and applied problems. In this paper, we introduce prediction of a future observation from scale models under the general entropy prediction loss function and deal with Bayes and Posterior Regret Gamma Minimax prediction and obtain general form of the predictors. We study and discuss the air temperature prediction problem and utilize the results using an available wellknown data set. A simulation study is also provided to illustrate the practical utility of the prediction procedure.

    ABSTRACT: In this article, the Pitman closeness of upper and lower k-records to progressive Type-II censored order statistics for location-scale families is investigated. In each case, the special properties of the probability of Pitman closeness are obtained and the corresponding monotonicity properties are discussed. Moreover, the closest k-record to a specific progressive Type-II censored data is obtained. Finally, for the standard exponential and standard uniform distributions, explicit expressions for the probability of Pitman closeness are derived. For various censoring schemes, the results of the numerical computations are displayed in tables. Most of the results in Ahmadi and Balakrishnan (2013)4. Ahmadi, J., Balakrishnan, N. (2013).

    ABSTRACT: The problem of predicting future generalized-order statistics, by assuming the future sample size is a random variable, is discussed. A general expression for the coverage probability of the prediction intervals is derived. Since k-records and progressively type-II censored-order statistics are contained in the model of generalized-order statistics, the corresponding results for them can be deduced as special cases. When the future sample size has degenerate, binomial, Poisson and geometric distributions, numerical computations are given. The procedure for finding an optimal prediction interval is presented for each case. Finally, we apply our results to a real data set in life testing given in Lee and Wang [Statistical methods for survival data analysis. Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley and Sons; 2003, p. 58, Table 3.4] for illustrative the proposed procedure in this paper.
