Abstract

The Topp-Leone distribution was introduced by Topp-Leone in 1955. In this paper, an attempt has been made to fit Topp-Leone Generalized Exponential distribution. Since, Topp-Leone distribution contains only one parameter and its support set is restricted to (0,1), because of this, in most practical situations it is not a better fit for the lifetime modelling. So an extension of this distribution is required. A Bayesian approach has been adopted to fit this model as survival model. A real survival data set is used to illustrate. Implementation is done using R and JAGS and appropriate illustrations are made. R and JAGS codes have been provided to implement censoring mechanism using both optimization and simulation tools.
