Generalized exponential distribution: A Bayesian approach using MCMC methods
MetadataShow full item record
The generalized exponential distribution could be a good option to analyse lifetime data, as an alternative for the use of standard existing lifetime distributions as exponential, Weibull or gamma distributions. Assuming different non-informative prior distributions for the parameters of the model, we introduce a Bayesian analysis using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods. Some numerical illustrations considering simulated and real lifetime data are presented to illustrate the proposed methodology, especially the effects of different priors on the posterior summaries of interest.
