The Weibull distribution is a well known and common distribution. In this thesis, theoretical properties of weighted Weibull distributions are presented. Properties of the non-weighted Weibull distribution are also reiterated for comparison. The probability density functions, cumulative distribution functions, survival functions, hazard functions and reverse hazard functions are given for each distribution. In addition, Glaser's Lemma is applied to determine the behavior of the hazard functions. The standardized moments, differential entropy, Fisher information and results based on the likelihood function are given for each distribution as well. These results are also shown for the Rayleigh distribution, a special case of the Weibull distribution, and its weighted versions.
