On the Distribution of the Sums, Products and Quotient of Lomax Distributed Random Variables Based on FGM Copula

Jayrold P. Arcede, Milburn O. Macalos


In this article, a Lomax distribution based on Farlie-Gumbel-Morgenstern copula is introduced. Derivations of exact distribution $R=X+Y$, $V=XY$ and $Z=X/(X+Y)$ are obtained in closed form. Corresponding moment properties of these distributions are also derived. The expressions turn out to involve known special functions.
