On Bounds and Approximating Weighted Distributions by Exponential Distributions
Probability in the Engineering and Informational Sciences
In this article, we obtain error bounds for exponential approximations to the classes of weighted residual and equilibrium lifetime distributions with monotone weight functions. These bounds are obtained for the class of distributions with increasing (decreasing) hazard rate and mean residual life functions.
