Chapter 5. Sine-Skewed Cardioid Distribution


Full-text: Open access


Azzalini (1985) introduced a family of skew symmetric distributions. His technique has been applied to skew many continuous distribution defined on the entire real axis. Very few people worked on circular or on distributions defined on finite intervals. In this paper it is considered a sine-skewed cardioid distribution generated by perturbation of symmetric Cardioid distribution. Several basic properties of the sine-skewed cardioid distribution will be presented. Based on the truncated moment some characterizations of this distribution are given.
