Negative binomial Mixtures, construction of negative binomial mixtures and their properties
The objective of this project was to construct Negative Binomial mixtures. We consider a class of mixture distributions generated by randomizing the success parameter p and fixing parameter r of a Negative Binomial distribution where we obtained a number of mixtures. We parametized p to e-..1. and p to 1 - e-..1.. The mixing distributions used are Exponential, Gamma, Exponeniated Exponential, Beta Exponential, Variate Gamma, Variate Exponential, Inverse Gaussian, and Lindely. Some of the results were expressed in the explicit, expectations and recursive form. The explicit involves using [(x) = fC+;-l) pr(1- PYg(p)dp where x = 0,1,2, .... and g(p) is the mixing distribution. By using this method the Negative Binomial- Exponential mixture was obtained as [( x ) = - itrr(rx+r)r(r+it-l) 0 her rni Id b b . d usi I···· . r+l1l+x-l )r'r t er mixtures cou not e 0 tame usmg exp iclt since integration was not possible. The Expectations method involved using the Laplace or method of moments where [(x) = (r+;-l) L~=oG) (-l)k Lt(r + k) for x > 0; r > 0; andk = 0,1,2 ..... x. The mixtures obtained using this method are NB- Exponential (x) = C+xX-l) L~-O- (Xk) (-l)k _r+..k1+..._1,.

NB - Inverse Gaussian distribution was also obtained using recursive relations as P; (x) = -r-+x-l [Pr(x - 1) - --Prr+1 (x - 1)] . x r+x-l iv Geometric mixtures have been obtained by putting r = 1 in the Negative Binomial mixtures; we came up with Geometric-exponential, Geometric- Gamma, Geometric-Beta Exponential, Geometric-inverse Gaussian, and Geometric-Lindley mixtures. Cases in which the parameters p is fixed and r is a random variable where it has a continuous mixing distribution is considered, the probability generating function used is G (s) = L~=o PkSk where Pk is a Negative Binomial mixture. The results obtained were: NB- Exponential A [(l-QS)]-a G(s) = (1 qs) ,NB- Gamma G(s) = 1 + f3log - , NB-Beta Exponential G(s) = A+log - P p (a-1) . (a-1) . c L~o j (-1)1 . .
