 Title: A Characterization of the Negative Binomial Distribution Authors: Kolev, NikolayMinkova, Leda Keywords: Binomial Distribution Issue Date: 2000 Publisher: Institute of Mathematics and Informatics Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Citation: Pliska Studia Mathematica Bulgarica, Vol. 13, No 1, (2000), 151p-154p Abstract: Only a few characterizations have been obtained in literatute for the negative binomial distribution (see Johnson et al., Chap. 5, 1992). In this article a characterization of the negative binomial distribution related to random sums is obtained which is motivated by the geometric distribution characterization given by Khalil et al. (1991). An interpretation in terms of an unreliable system is given. URI: http://hdl.handle.net/10525/2167 ISSN: 0204-9805 Appears in Collections: 2000 Volume 13
