Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this work we consider the generalized upper (k) record values (GURV’s) and generalized lower (k) record values (GLRV’s) arising from half-logistic distribution (HLD) and inverse half-logistic distribution (IHLD). We derive some characterization results of HLD based on some moment relations of generalized upper (k) record values and those of generalized lower (k) record values and accordingly devised some diagnostic tools to identify HLD as a model to the distribution of a population. Similar characterization theorems and diagnostic tools are developed for IHLD as well. Simulation studies are conducted to validate the diagnostic tools devised for both HLD and IHLD.
