The results for order statistics and lower record values are deduced from the relation derived. Further, characterizing result of this distribution on using a recurrence relation for marginal moment generating functions dual generalized order statistics is discussed. 1 Introduction The concept of generalized order statistics (gos) was introduced by Kamps [1] as a general framework for models of ordered random variables. Moreover, many other models of ordered random variables, such as, order statistics, k-th upper record values, upper record values, progressively Type II censoring order statistics, Pfeifer records and sequential order statistics are seen to be particular cases of gos. These models can be e¤ectively applied, e.g., in reliability theory. However, random variables that are decreasingly ordered cannot be integrated into this framework. Consequently, this model is inappropriate to study, e.g. reversed ordered order statistic and lower record values models. Burkschat et al. [2] introduced the concept of dual generalized order statistics (dgos). The dgos models enable us to study decreasingly ordered random variables like reversed order statistics, lower k record values and lower Pfeirfer records, through a common approach below: Suppose Xd (1; n; m; k); : : : ; Xd (n; n; m; k), (k 1, m is a real number), are n dgos from an absolutely continuous cumulative distribution function cdf F (x) with probability density function pdf f (x), if their joint pdf is of the form 0 1 ! n n Y1 Y1 m A k@ [F (xi )] f (xi ) [F (xn )]k 1 f (xn ); (1) j j=1 i=1 for F 1 (1) > x1 x2 : : : xn > F 1 (0), where j = k + (n j)(m + 1) > 0 for all j, 1 j n, k is a positive integer and m 1. If m = 0 and k = 1, then this model reduces to the (n r + 1)-th order statistic, from the sample X1 ; X2 ; : : : ; Xn and (1) Mathematics Subject Classi…cations: 62G30, 62E10. of Statistics, Amity Institute of Applied Sciences Amity University, Noida-201 303, India. y Department 105 106 The Exponentiated Gamma Distribution will be the joint pdf of n order statistics. If k = 1 and m = 1, then (1) will be the joint pdf of the …rst n record values of the identically and independently distributed (iid) random variables with cdf F (x) and corresponding pdf f (x). In view of (1), the marginal pdf of the r-th dgos, is given by fXd (r;n;m;k) (x) = Cr 1 [F (x)] (r 1)! r 1 r 1 f (x)gm (F (x)): (2) The joint pdf of r-th and s-th dgos, is = fXd (r;n;m;k);Xd (s;n;m;k) (x; y) Cs 1 r 1 [F (x)]m f (x)gm (F (x)) (r 1)!(s r 1)! [hm (F (y)) where Cr 1 = r Y i=1 i, s r 1 hm (F (x))] hm (x) = [F (y)] 1 m+1 m+1 x lnx s 1 f (y); for m 6= for m = (3) 1; 1; and gm (x) = hm (x) hm (1); for x 2 [0; 1). Ahsanullah and Raqab [3], Raqab and Ahsanullah [4, 5] have established recurrence relations for moment generating functions (mgf ) of record values from Pareto and Gumble, power function and extreme value distributions. Recurrence relations for marginal and joint mgf of gos from power function distribution, Erlang-truncated exponential distribution and extended type II generalized logistic distribution are derived by Saran and Singh [6], Kulshrestha et al. [7] and Kumar [8] respectively. Kumar [9, 10, 11] have established recurrence relations for marginal and joint mgf of dgos from generalized logistic, Marshall-Olkin extended logistic and type I generalized logistic distribution respectively. Al-Hussaini et al. [12, 13] have established recurrence relations for conditional and joint mgf of gos based on mixed population. Kumar [14] have established explicit expressions and some recurrence relations for mgf of record values from generalized logistic distribution. Recurrence relations for single and product moments of dgos from the inverse Weibull distribution are derived by Pawlas and Szynal [15]. Ahsanullah [16] and Mbah and Ahsanullah [17] characterized the uniform and power function distributions based on distributional properties of dgos respectively. Characterizations based on gos have been studied by some authors, Keseling [18] characterized some continuous distributions based on conditional distributions of gos. Bieniek and Szynal [19] characterized some distributions via linearity of regression of gos. Cramer et al. [20] gave a unifying approach on characterization via linear regression of ordered random variables. Rest of the paper is organized as follows: In Section 2 exact expressions and recurrence relations for marginal and joint mgf of dgos from exponentiated Gamma distribution (EGD) are presented, while in Section 3, the exact expressions and recurrence D. Kumar 107 relations for joint mgf for dgos from EGD are discussed In Section 4, a characterization of EGD is obtained by using the recurrence relation for marginal mgf of dgos. Some …nal comments in Section 5 conclude the paper. Gupta et al. [21] introduced the EGD. This model is ‡exible enough to accommodate both monotonic as well as nonmonotonic failure rates. The cdf and pdf of EGD are given, respectively by F (x) = [1 f (x) = xe x x e [1 (x + 1)] ; x > 0; x e (x + 1)] 1 > 0, ; x > 0; (4) > 0: (5) Note that for F GD; xF (x) = [e x (x + 1)]f (x): (6) For = 1, the above distribution corresponds to the gamma distribution G(1; 2). 2 Relations for Marginal Moments Generating Functions In this Section the exact expressions and recurrence relations for marginal mgf of dgos from EGD are considered.

Let L(a; b) stand for the space of all integrable functions on (a; b) . A sequence (fn ) L(a; b) is called complete on L(a; b) if for all functions g 2 L(a; b) the condition Z b g(x)fn (x)dx = 0; a n 2 N; implies g(x) = 0 a.e. on (a; b). We start with the following result of Lin [23]. PROPOSITION 1. Let n0 be any …xed non-negative integer, 1 a<b 1 and g(x) 0 an absolutely continuous function with g 0 (x) 6= 0 a.e. on (a; b). Then the sequence of functions f(g(x))n e g(x) ; n n0 g is complete in L(a; b) i¤ g(x) is strictly monotone on (a; b). Using the above Proposition we get a stronger version of Theorem 1. THEOREM 3. A necessary and su¢ cient conditions for a random variable X to be distributed with pdf given by (5) is that (j) MXd (r;n;m;k) (t) (j) = MXd (r 1;n;m;k) (t) + j n (j 1) MXd (r;n;m;k) (t) r o E[h(Xd (r; n; m; k))] : (31) PROOF. The necessary part follows immediately from equation (17). On the other hand if the recurrence relation in equation (31) is satis…ed, then on using equation (2), we have Z 1 Cr 1 r 1 etx [F (x)] r 1 f (x)gm (F (x))dx (r 1)! 0 Z 1 Cr 1 r 2 = etx [F (x)] r +m f (x)gm (F (x))dx 2)! 0 r (r Z 1 (t+1)x tCr 1 e r 1 [F (x)] r 1 f (x)gm (F (x))dx 1)! 0 x r (r Z 1 tCr 1 r 1 + xj 1 [F (x)] r 1 f (x)gm (F (x))dx 1)! 0 r (r 118 The Exponentiated Gamma Distribution and tCr r (r 1 1)! Z 0 11 etx [F (x)] x r 1 r 1 f (x)gm (F (x))dx: (32) Integrating the …rst integral on the right-hand side of the above equation by parts and simplifying the resulting expression, we get Z 1 etx (x + 1) tCr 1 r 1 etx [F (x)] r 1 gm (F (x)) F (x) f (x) dx = 0: (33) (r 1)! 0 x It now follows from Proposition 1, that xF (x) = [etx (x + 1)]f (x) which proves that f (x) has the form (4). 5 Concluding Remarks (i) In this paper, we proposed new explicit expressions and recurrence relations for marginal and joint moment generating functions of dgos from EGD. Further, characterization of this distribution has also been obtained on using recurrence relation for marginal moment generating functions of dgos. Special cases are also deduced. (ii) The recurrence relations for moments of ordered random variables are important because they reduce the amount of direct computations for moments, evaluate the higher moments in terms of the lower moments and they can be used to characterize distributions. (iii) The recurrence relations of higher joint moments enable us to derive single, product, triple and quadruple moments which can be used in Edgeworth approximate inference. Acknowledgments.
