On the extended two-parameter generalized skew-normal distribution

Ogundimu, Emmanuel O. and Hutton, Jane L. (2015) 'On the extended two-parameter generalized skew-normal distribution.', Statistics & probability letters., 100 . pp. 142-148.


We propose a three-parameter skew-normal distribution, obtained by using hidden truncation on a skew-normal random variable. The hidden truncation framework permits direct interpretation of the model parameters. A link is established between the model and the closed skew-normal distribution.
