Bayesian Approach to Generalized Normal Distribution under Non-Informative and Informative Priors

By Saima Naqash S.P Ahmad Aquil Ahmed

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Nov. 2018

The generalized Normal distribution is obtained from normal distribution by adding a shape parameter to it. This paper is based on the estimation of the shape and scale parameter of generalized Normal distribution by using the maximum likelihood estimation and Bayesian estimation method via Lindley approximation method under Jeffreys prior and informative priors. The objective of this paper is to see which is the suitable prior for the shape and scale parameter of generalized Normal distribution. Simulation study with varying sample sizes, based on MSE, is conducted in R-software for data analysis.
