# log of exponential distribution

The normal distribution contains an area of 50 percent above and 50 percent below the population mean. The standard exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p \in (0, 1)$$ is a continuous distribution on $$[0, \infty)$$ with probability density function $$g$$ given by The moments of the standard exponential-logarithmic distribution cannot be expressed in terms of the usual elementary functions, but can be expressed in terms of a special function known as the polylogarithm. In fact, the point $(1,0)$ will always be on the graph of a function of the form $y=log{_b}x$ where $b>0$. For $$s \in \R$$, has the standard exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$. $$\newcommand{\R}{\mathbb{R}}$$ The most important property of the polylogarithm is given in the following theorem: The polylogarithm satisfies the following recursive integral formula: As a function of $$x$$, this is the reliability function of the standard exponential distribution. \sum_{k=1}^\infty \frac{(1 - p)^k}{k^{n+1}} = - n! Now we must note that these points are not on the original function ($y=log{_3}x$) but rather on its inverse $3^x=y$. Featured on Meta New Feature: Table Support Open the special distribution simulator and select the exponential-logarithmic distribution. Hence If the base, $b$, is equal to $1$, then the function trivially becomes $y=a$. Since $b$ is a positive number, there is no exponent that we can raise $b$ to so as to obtain $0$. Remember that since the logarithmic function is the inverse of the exponential function, the domain of logarithmic function is the range of exponential function, and vice versa. The exponential-logarithmic distribution has applications in reliability theory in the context of devices or organisms that improve with age, due to hardening or immunity. Graph of $y=2^x$ and $y=\frac{1}{2}^x$: The graphs of these functions are symmetric over the $y$-axis. The mean and variance of the standard exponential logarithmic distribution follow easily from the general moment formula. Graphs of $log{_2}x$ and $log{_\frac{1}{2}}x$ : The graphs of $log_2 x$ and $log{_\frac{1}{2}}x$ are symmetric over the x-axis. The exponential-logarithmic distribution arises when the rate parameter of the exponential distribution is randomized by the logarithmic distribution. Logarithmic functions can be graphed manually or electronically with points generally determined via a calculator or table. The above interpretation of the exponential is useful in better understanding the properties of the exponential distribution. Let us consider what happens as the value of $x$ approaches zero from the right for the equation whose graph appears above. Hence, using the polylogarithm of order 1 (the standard power series for the logarithm), For fixed $$b \in (0, \infty)$$, the exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p \in (0, 1)$$ and scale parameter $$b$$ converges to. $F(x) = 1 - \frac{\ln\left[1 - (1 - p) e^{-x / b}\right]}{\ln(p)}, \quad x \in [0, \infty)$. The top right and bottom left are called semi-log scales because one axis is scaled linearly while the other is scaled using logarithms. $\Li_1(x) = \sum_{k=1}^\infty \frac{x^k}{k} = -\ln(1 - x), \quad x \in (-1, 1)$, The polylogarithm of order 2 is known as the, The polylogarithm of order 3 is known as the, $$\E(X^n) \to 0$$ as $$p \downarrow 0$$, $$\E(X^n) \to n! $g(x) = -\frac{1}{\ln(p)} \sum_{k=1}^\infty (1 - p)^k e^{-kx}, \quad x \in [0, \infty)$ $\E(X^n) = -n! The median is \( q_2 = \ln(1 - p) - \ln\left(1 - p^{1/2}\right) = \ln\left(1 + \sqrt{p}\right)$$. Recall that $$R(x) = \frac{1}{b} r\left(\frac{x}{b}\right)$$ for $$x \in [0, \infty)$$, where $$r$$ is the failure rate function of the standard distribution. The point $(1,b)$ is on the graph. For selected values of the parameters, run the simulation 1000 times and compare the empirical density function to the probability density function. has the exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$ and scale parameter $$b$$. $$g$$ is concave upward on $$[0, \infty)$$. $$\E(X^n) \to b^n n! If \( b \in (0, \infty)$$, then $$X = b Z$$ has the exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$ and scale parameter $$b$$. Where A is the amplitude (in mm) measured by the Seismograph and B is a distance correction factor. The points $(0,1)$ and $(1,b)$ are always on the graph of the function $y=b^x$. The chapter looks at some applications which relate to electronic components used in the area of computing. As you can see, when both axis used a logarithmic scale (bottom right) the graph retained the properties of the original graph (top left) where both axis were scaled using a linear scale. The exponent we seek is $-1$ and the point $(\frac{1}{b},-1)$ is on the graph. $$f$$ is decreasing on $$[0, \infty)$$ with mode $$x = 0$$. As you connect the points, you will notice a smooth curve that crosses the $y$-axis at the point $(0,1)$ and is increasing as $x$ takes on larger and larger values. Convert problems to logarithmic scales and discuss the advantages of doing so. The exponential-logarithmic model, together with its various properties, are studied by Tahmasbi and Rezaei (2008) This model is obtained under the concept of population heterogeneity (through the process of compounding). Recall that if $$U$$ has the standard uniform distribution, then $$G^{-1}(U)$$ has the exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$. This is called exponential growth. Since, the exponential function is one-to-one and onto R+, a function g can be defined from the set of positive real numbers into the set of real numbers given by g (y) = x, if and only if, y=e x. The exponential distribution refers to the continuous and constant probability distribution which is actually used to model the time period that a person needs to wait before the given event happens and this distribution is a continuous counterpart of a geometric distribution that is instead distinct. Describe the properties of graphs of exponential functions. The exponential distribution is a continuous random variable probability distribution with the following form. Log and Exponential transforms If the frequency distribution for a dataset is broadly unimodal and left-skewed, the natural log transform (logarithms base e ) will adjust the pattern to make it more symmetric/similar to a Normal distribution . And I just missed the bus! Thus, the polylogarithm of order 0 is a simple geometric series, and the polylogarithm of order 1 is the standard power series for the natural logarithm. Equivalently, $$x \, \Li_{s+1}^\prime(x) = \Li_s(x)$$ for $$x \in (-1, 1)$$ and $$s \in \R$$. As you can see in the graph below, the graph of $y=\frac{1}{2}^x$ is symmetric to that of $y=2^x$ over the $y$-axis. Returns TensorVariable. The polylogarithm is a power series in $$x$$ with radius of convergence is 1 for each $$s \in \R$$. Thus, it becomes difficult to graph such functions on the standard axis. As $x$ takes on smaller and smaller values the curve gets closer and closer to the $x$ -axis. The range of the square root function is all non-negative real numbers, whereas the range of the logarithmic function is all real numbers. The polylogarithm functions of orders 0, 1, 2, and 3. Open the special distribution simulator and select the exponential-logarithmic distribution. $$\newcommand{\skw}{\text{skew}}$$, quantile function of the standard distribution, failure rate function of the standard distribution. Assumptions. It's best to work with reliability functions. Some functions with rapidly changing shape are best plotted on a scale that increases exponentially, such as a logarithmic graph. Where a normal (linear) graph might have equal intervals going 1, 2, 3, 4, a logarithmic scale would have those same equal intervals represent 1, 10, 100, 1000. However, if we interchange the $x$ and $y$-coordinates of each point we will in fact obtain a list of points on the original function. For example, the amount of time (beginning now) until an earthquake occurs has an exponential distribution. These results follow from basic properties of expected value and the corresponding results for the standard distribution. (2): then it can be shown that -\log X is distributed as \exp(1) {i.e. Graph of $y=2^x$: The graph of this function crosses the $y$-axis at $(0,1)$ and increases as $x$ approaches infinity. Many mathematical and physical relationships are functionally dependent on high-order variables. Open the special distribution simulator and select the exponential-logarithmic distribution. Suppose also that $$N$$ has the logarithmic distribution with parameter $$1 - p \in (0, 1)$$ and is independent of $$\bs T$$. The first quartile is $$q_1 = \ln(1 - p) - \ln\left(1 - p^{3/4}\right)$$. Here are some examples of functions graphed on a linear scale, semi-log and logarithmic scales. Let us assume that $b$ is a positive number greater than $1$, and let us investigate values of $x$ between $0$ and $1$. This is called exponential decay. Vary the shape parameter and note the shape of the probability density function. Similar data plotted on a linear scale is less clear. In Poisson process events occur continuously and independently at a constant average rate. The distribution function $$G$$ is given by That is, the curve approaches zero as $x$ approaches negative infinity making the $x$-axis is a horizontal asymptote of the function. \) as $$p \uparrow 1$$. \frac{\Li_{n+1}(1 - p)}{\Li_1(1 - p)}, \quad n \in \N$, As noted earlier in the discussion of the polylogarithm, the PDF of $$X$$ can be written as Exponential family is a set of probability distributions whose probability density function (or probability mass function, for the case of a discrete distribution) can be expressed in the form where η is the parameter for the probability density function, which is independent of x, and A(η) is also independent of x. η is also called the natural parameter of the distribution, T(x) is also called the sufficient statistics, A(η) is also called the log normalizer (we will see why), h(x)is also called the base measurement, and the abo… For example, the amount of time (beginning now) until an earthquake occurs has an exponential distribution. This is known as exponential decay. The distribution of $$Z$$ converges to the standard exponential distribution as $$p \uparrow 1$$ and hence the the distribution of $$X$$ converges to the exponential distribution with scale parameter $$b$$. It is important to know the probability density function, the distribution function and the quantile function of the exponential distribution. As is the convention, q followed by the shortened version exp of the exponential name, qexp calculates the quantiles of the exponential distribution. In this paper, a new three-parameter lifetime model called the Topp-Leone odd log-logistic exponential distribution is proposed. Key Terms. A logarithmic function of the form $y=log{_b}x$ where $b$ is a positive real number, can be graphed by using a calculator to determine points on the graph or can be graphed without a calculator by using the fact that its inverse is an exponential function. That is, as $x$ approaches zero the graph approaches negative infinity. Logarithmic functions can be graphed by hand without the use of a calculator if we use the fact that they are inverses of exponential functions. These are:  $(\frac{1}{9},-2),(\frac{1}{3},-1),(1,0),(3,1),(9,2)$ and $(27,3)$. Suppose again that $$X$$ has the exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p \in (0, 1)$$ and scale parameter $$b \in (0, \infty)$$. The point $(0,1)$ is always on the graph of an exponential function of the form $y=b^x$ because $b$ is positive and any positive number to the zero power yields $1$. Note that the probability density function of $$X$$ can be written in terms of the polylogarithms of orders 0 and 1: Probability density function If $$X$$ has the exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$ and scale parameter $$b$$, then Since the quantile function of the basic exponential-logarithmic distribution has a simple closed form, the distribution can be simulated using the random quantile method. It is much clearer on logarithmic axes. Recall the following properties of logarithms: $\log(ab)=\log(a)+\log(b) \\ \log(a)^b=(b)\log(a)$, \begin{align} \log j&=4\log{(\sigma\tau ) } \\ &=4\log{(\sigma)}+4\log{(\tau ) } \\ &=4\log{(\tau ) }+4\log{(\sigma)} \end{align}, CC licensed content, Specific attribution, http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/exponential_growth, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_function, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_growth, http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/exponential_function, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Exponenciala_priklad.png, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:2%5Ex_function_graph.PNG, http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/logarithmic_function, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Logarithm_plots.png, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Log4.svg, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Square-root.svg, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithmic_scale, http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/interpolate, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Logarithmic_Scales.svg. $$\newcommand{\E}{\mathbb{E}}$$ Vary the shape parameter and note the shape of the distribution and probability density functions. A key point about using logarithmic graphs to solve problems is that they expand scales to the point at which large ranges of data make more sense. All three logarithmic graphs begin with a steep climb after $x=0$, but stretch more and more horizontally, their slope ever-decreasing as $x$ increases. If the log CDF for multiple values are desired the values must be provided in a numpy array or theano tensor. $\E(X^n) = -\frac{1}{\ln(p)} n! The failure rate function $$R$$ of $$X$$ is given by. For $$n \in \N_+$$, $$\min\{T_1, T_2, \ldots, T_n\}$$ has the exponential distribution with rate parameter $$n$$, and hence $$\P(\min\{T_1, T_2, \ldots T_n\} \gt x) = e^{-n x}$$ for $$x \in [0, \infty)$$. Statistics 3858 : Likelihood Ratio for Exponential Distribution In these two example the rejection rejection region is of the form fx : 2log(( x)) >cg for an appropriate constant c. For a size test, using Theorem 9.5A we obtain this critical value from a ˜2 (1) distribution. The exponential distribution with scale parameter $$b$$ as $$p \uparrow 1$$. Recall that a power series may integrated term by term, and the integrated series has the same radius of convergence. The fact that the rate is ever-increasing (and steeply so) means that changing scale (scaling the axes by $5$, $10$ or even $100$) is of little help in making the graph easier to interpret. Open the special distribution calculator and select the exponential-logarithmic distribution. Hence the series converges absolutely for $$|x| \lt 1$$ and diverges for $$|x| \gt 1$$. $$R$$ is decreasing on $$[0, \infty)$$. Hence for $$s \in \R$$, If the $x$-value were zero, the function would read $y=log{_b}0$. For the shape of the graph of $$g$$ note that Vary the shape parameter and note the size and location of the mean $$\pm$$ standard deviation bar. Logarithmic scale: The graphs of functions $f(x)=10^x,f(x)=x$ and $f(x)=\log x$ on four different coordinate plots. But then $$Y = c X = (b c) Z$$. \[ \E(X^n) = -\frac{1}{\ln(p)} \int_0^\infty \sum_{k=1}^\infty (1 - p)^k x^n e^{-k x} dx = -\frac{1}{\ln(p)} \sum_{k=1}^\infty (1 - p)^k \int_0^\infty x^n e^{-k x} dx$ $$X$$ has probability density function $$f$$ given by As can be seen the closer the value of $x$ gets to $0$, the more and more negative the graph becomes. We will get some additional insight into the asymptotics below when we consider the limiting distribution as $$p \downarrow 0$$ and $$p \uparrow 1$$. On a standard graph, this equation can be quite unwieldy. As $b>0$, the exponent we seek is $1$ irrespective of the value of $b$. Top Left is a linear scale, top right and bottom left are semi-log scales and bottom right is a logarithmic scale. Loudness is measured in Decibels (dB for short): Loudness in dB = 10 log 10 (p × 10 12) where p is the sound pressure. For selected values of the parameter, run the simulation 1000 times and compare the empirical density function to the probability density function. The point $(1,b)$ is always on the graph of an exponential function of the form $y=b^x$ because any positive number $b$ raised to the first power yields $1$. Then $$X = \min\{T_1, T_2, \ldots, T_N\}$$ has the basic exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$. As $$p \uparrow 1$$, the expression for $$\E(X^n)$$ has the indeterminate form $$\frac{0}{0}$$. This means the point $(x,y)=(1,0)$ will always be on a logarithmic function of this type. Suppose that $$X$$ has the exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$ and scale parameter $$b$$, so that $$X = b Z$$ where $$Z$$ has the standard exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$. When graphing without a calculator, we use the fact that the inverse of a logarithmic function is an exponential function. One way to graph this function is to choose values for $x$ and substitute these into the equation to generate values for $y$. It models phenomena whose relative growth rate is independent of size, which is true of most natural phenomena including the size of tissue and blood pressure, income distribution, and even the length of chess games. The domain of the function is all positive numbers. The log of a base e is called the natural log of a … Between each major value on the logarithmic scale, the hashmarks become increasingly closer together with increasing value. In the equation mentioned above ($j^*= \sigma T^4$), plotting $j$ vs. $T$ would generate the expected curve, but the scale would be such that minute changes go unnoticed and the large scale effects of the relationship dominate the graph: It is so big that the “interesting areas” won’t fit on the paper on a readable scale. Thus, we are looking for an exponent $y$ such that $b^y=1$. The exponential-logarithmic distribution arises when the rate parameter of the exponential distribution is randomized by the logarithmic distribution. $G(x) = 1 - \frac{\ln\left[1 - (1 - p) e^{-x}\right]}{\ln(p)}, \quad x \in [0, \infty)$. Again, since the quantile function of the exponential-logarithmic distribution has a simple closed form, the distribution can be simulated using the random quantile method. The exponential-logarithmic distribution has decreasing failure rate. The exponential distribution is the probability distribution of the time or space between two events in a Poisson process, where the events occur continuously and independently at a constant rate \lambda.. \zeta(n + 1) \) while the denominator diverges to $$\infty$$. The inverse of a … \) as $$p \uparrow 1$$, $$\E(X) = - b \Li_2(1 - p) \big/ \ln(p)$$, $$\var(X) = b^2 \left(-2 \Li_3(1 - p) \big/ \ln(p) - \left[\Li_2(1 - p) \big/ \ln(p)\right]^2 \right)$$. (Assume that the time that elapses from one bus to the next has exponential distribution, which means the total number of buses to arrive during an hour has Poisson distribution.) Other examples include the length, in minutes, of long distance business telephone calls, and the amount of time, in months, a car battery lasts. Note that $$G^c(0) = 1$$ for every $$p \in (0, 1)$$. In fact, since $b$ is positive, raising it to a power will always yield a positive number. This distribution is parameterized by two parameters and. where $$\zeta$$ is the Riemann zeta function, named for Georg Riemann. In probability theory and statistics, the exponential-logarithmic (EL) distribution is a family of lifetime distributions with decreasing failure rate, defined on the interval (0, ∞). \frac{\Li_{n+1}(1 - p)}{\ln(p)}, \quad n \in \N \]. As the name suggests, the basic exponential-logarithmic distribution arises from the exponential distribution and the logarithmic distribution via a certain type of randomization. Hence by the corresponding result above, $$Z = \min\{V_1, V_2, \ldots, V_N\}$$ has the basic exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$. $\P(N = n) = -\frac{(1 - p)^n}{n \ln(p)} \quad, n \in \N_+$ For = :05 we obtain c= 3:84. A generic term of the sequence has probability density function where is the support of the distribution and the rate parameter is the parameter that needs to be estimated. The exponential distribution. To show that the radius of convergence is 1, we use the ratio test from calculus. This means that for small changes in the independent variable there are very large changes in the dependent variable. Vary the shape parameter and note the shape of the distribution and probability density functions. At first glance, the graph of the logarithmic function can easily be mistaken for that of the square root function. Properties of the distribution Distribution $f(x) = -\frac{(1 - p) e^{-x / b}}{b \ln(p)[1 - (1 - p) e^{-x / b}]}, \quad x \in [0, \infty)$. Suppose that $$Z$$ has the standard exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p \in (0, 1)$$. The exponential distribution is often concerned with the amount of time until some specific event occurs. This follows trivially from the distribution function since $$F^c = 1 - F$$. References. The ln, the natural log is known e, exponent to which a base should be raised to get the desired random variable x, which could be found on the normal distribution … The standard exponential distribution as $$p \to 1$$. Its shape is the same as other logarithmic functions, just with a different scale. As $1$ to any power yields $1$, the function is equivalent to $y=1$ which is a horizontal line, not an exponential equation. For selected values of the shape parameter, run the simulation 1000 times and compare the empirical density function to the probability density function. The graph crosses the $x$-axis at $1$. Thus, if one wanted to convert a linear scale (with values $0-5$ to a logarithmic scale, one option would be to replace $1,2,3,4$ and 5 with $0.001,0.01,0.1,1,10$ and $100$, respectively. The graph of a logarithmic function of the form $y=log{_b}x$ can be shifted horizontally and/or vertically by adding a constant to the variable $x$ or to $y$, respectively. $$\newcommand{\Li}{\text{Li}}$$ The “transformed” distributions discussed here have two parameters, and (for inverse exponential). The moments of $$X$$ (about 0) are $\int_0^\infty \frac{(1 - p) e^{-x}}{1 - (1 - p) e^{-x}} dx = \int_0^{1-p} \frac{du}{1 - u} = -\ln(p)$ Transforming Exponential. The domain of the logarithmic function $y=log{_b}x$, where $b$ is all positive real numbers, is the set of all positive real numbers, whereas the range of this function is all real numbers. The Exponential Distribution: A continuous random variable X is said to have an Exponential(λ) distribution if it has probability density function f X(x|λ) = ˆ λe−λx for x>0 0 for x≤ 0, where λ>0 is called the rate of the distribution. But $$1 - U$$ also has the standard uniform distribution and hence$$X = G^{-1}(1 - U)$$ also has the exponential-logarithmic distribution with shape parameter $$p$$. \big/ k^{n + 1} \) and hence From the general moment results, note that $$\E(X) \to 0$$ and $$\var(X) \to 0$$ as $$p \downarrow 0$$, while $$\E(X) \to b$$ and $$\var(X) \to b^2$$ as $$p \uparrow 1$$. exponential with mean 1}. g^{\prime\prime}(x) & = -\frac{(1 - p) e^{-x} [1 + (1 - p) e^{-x}}{\ln(p) [1 - (1 - p) e^{-x}]^3}, \quad x \in [0, \infty) For example, the amount of time (beginning now) until an earthquake occurs has an exponential distribution. \end{align}. Thus far we have graphed logarithmic functions whose bases are greater than $1$. M = log 10 A + B.

The parameter is the shape parameter, which comes from the exponent .The scale parameter is added after raising the base distribution to a power.. Let be the random variable for the base exponential distribution. The bottom right is a logarithmic scale. Note that $$V_i = T_i / b$$ has the standard exponential distribution. Let us begin by considering why the $x$-value of the curve is never $0$. Similarly, to compute the exponential family parameters in the Bernoulli distribution we follow as: p(x, α) = αx(1 − α)1 − x, x ∈ {0, 1} = exp(log(αx(1 − α)1 − x) = exp(xlogα + (1 − x)log(1 − α)) = exp(xlog α 1 − α + log(1 − α)) = exp(xη − log(1 + eη)) where: h(x) = … The function $y=b^x$ takes on only positive values and has the $x$-axis as a horizontal asymptote.
