Some considerations and developments about recently proposed families of distributions with hinge points

Brizzi, Maurizio; Dipartimento Di Scienze Statistiche “Paolo Fortunati” - Università Di Bologna
This paper deals with probability density functions with hinge points, useful when representing phenomena which have different statistical features, depending on the fact that a threshold point has been overtaken or not. The STSP distribution, proposed by Van Dorp and Kotz (2002 a) is recalled and developed, and a modified model (MTSP), a mixture of STSP and Uniform, is defined and studied. Moreover, the Two Faced distribution, already proposed in Brizzi (2006), is recalled and...
