Generalized Alpha Skew Normal Distribution

Alodat, Tareq and Khan, Shahjahan ORCID: and Alodat, Moh'd T. and Memon, Muhammed A. (2020) Generalized Alpha Skew Normal Distribution. Statistica & Applicazioni. pp. 1-15. ISSN 1824-6672


This paper extends the work of Elal-Olivero (2010) on the alpha-skew normal (ASN) distribution. The extension is a multivariate version of Elal-Olivero’s univariate case. Then we study the statistical properties of the new extension such as marginal and conditional distribution, closure under convolution with normal random variate. Furthermore, we illustrate the performance of the distribution using simulated data obtained from the generalized distribution via the Metropolis-Hasting algorithm.
