### Abstract

In this paper, we establish some recurrence relations satisfied by single and product moments of Generalized Order Statistics from Left Truncated Logistic Distribution. These recurrence relations are independent of left truncated point and therefore are also applicable for Logistic as well as for half Logistic distributions studied in Balakrishnan (1985) and Saran and Pandey (2012). For a particular case these results verify the corresponding results of Saran and Pandey (2004) and Kumar (2010) for p=∞.

### 1. Introduction

Generalized order statistics (GOS) have been introduced and extensively studied in Kamps (1995 a,b) as a unified theoretical set-up which contains a variety of models of ordered random variables with different interpretations. Examples of such models are: Ordinary order statistics, Sequential order statistics, Progressive type II censored order statistics, Record values, k^{th} record value and Pfeifer’s records. There is no natural interpretation of generalized order statistics in terms of observed random samples but these models can be effectively applied in life testing and reliability analysis, medical and life time data, and models related to software reliability analysis, etc. The structural similarities and common approach of these models makes it possible to define several distributional properties at once.

### 2. Left Truncated Logistic Distribution

A random variable X is said to have Left Truncated Logistic Distribution (LTLD) if its probability density function is of the form

(2.1) |

and its cumulative distribution function is given by

(2.2) |

The characterization differential equation for LTLD distribution is given by

, where

(2.3) |

The mathematical form of pdf, as given in (2.3), is very useful to derive the expressions for recurrence relations for single and product moments of GOS.

### 3. Generalized Order Statistics

Let be a sequence of absolutely continuous, independent and identically distributed random variables with cdf and pdf f(x). Assume k > 0, n{2,3,…}, , , such that for all . Then , r = 1, 2,…,n, are called GOS if their joint pdf is given by

(3.1) |

where

By choosing appropriate values of parameters, we get the distribution of a few very common statistics as shown in the table given below.

The joint pdf of first r, GOS is given by:

(3.2) |

where, .

We now consider two cases:

Case I: m_{1}_{ }= m_{2 }= …= m _{n}_{ }_{}_{1 }= m

Case II: .

For case I, the GOS will be denoted by X(r, n, m, k). The pdf of X(r, n, m, k) is given by

(3.3) |

and the joint pdf of X(r, n, m, k) and X(s, n, m, k), is given by:

(3.4) |

where,

(3.5) |

For case II, the pdf of is given by

Also, the joint pdf of and , 1 r < s n is given by

The moments of order statistics have generated considerable interest in the recent years. The expressions for several recurrence relations and identities satisfied by single as well as product moments of order statistics have been obtained by several authors in the past. These relations help in reducing the quantum of computations involved. Joshi (1978, 1982) established recurrence relations for exponential distribution with unit mean and were further extended by Balakrishnan and Joshi (1984) for doubly truncated exponential distribution. For linear-exponential distribution, Balakrishnan and Malik(1986) derived the similar type of relations which were extended to doubly truncated linear exponential distribution by Mohie El-Din et al. (1997) and Saran and Pushkarna (1999). Nain (2010 a, b) obtained recurrence relations for ordinary order statistics and k^{th} record values from p^{th} order exponential and generalized weibull distributions, respectively.

The recurrence relations for the moments of generalized order statistics based on non identically distributed random variables were developed by Kamps (1995 a, b). Pawlas and Szynal (2001) obtained recurrence relations for single and product moments of generalized order statistics from Pareto, generalized Pareto and Burr distributions. Saran and Pandey (2004, 2009) obtained recurrence relations for single and product moments of generalized order statistics from linear-exponential and Burr distributions. Saran and Pandey (2011) obtained recurrence relations for marginal and joint moment generating functions of dual (lower) generalized order statistics from inverse Weibull distribution.

In this paper, we have established recurrence relations for single and product moments of GOS from LTLD as well as marginal and joint moment generating functions of GOS from the LTLD. This distribution has many applications in Biology, Epidemiology, Psychology, Computer Technology, Marketing, Energy, Hydrology and Physics. The results so obtained are generalized versions of some of the recurrence relations obtained by Saran and Pandey (2004).

In the study presented above, we demonstrate the recurrence relations for single and product moments of GOS from LTLD. These results generalize the corresponding results of Kumar (2010) for.
