On Extension of Weibull Distribution with Bayesian Analysis using S-Plus Software

  • Bilal Ahmad Bhat
Keywords: Weibull Distribution, Bayesian Method, Prior, Probability Density Function, Statistical Model


We introduce a new lifetime distribution which is an extension of Weibull distribution and yields a number of well-known distributions as a special case. The Bayesian analysis using different priors is discussed using different priors with the help of S-Plus software as nowadays great attention has been given to Bayesian approach.
