A note on the complementary mixture Pareto II distribution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We introduce a new survival distribution, of Pareto type, that arises from a curemixture frailty model. We describe its properties and demonstrate connections with familiar distributions including the Pareto and exponential. We derive its characteristic function and moments.
