Characterization of Generalized Uniform Distribution through Expectation
Author(s) Milind B. Bhatt
ABSTRACT
Normally the mass of a root has a uniform distribution but some have different uniform distributions named Generalized Uniform Distribution (GUD). The characterization result based on expectation of function of random variable has been obtained for generalized uniform distribution. Applications are given for illustrative purpose including a special case of uniform distribution.
