Abstract

We give recurrence relations for single and product moments of k-th lower record values from the inverse Pareto, inverse generalized Pareto and inverse Burr distributions. We present also characterization conditions for these distributions.

Keywords and phrases: sample, order statistics, k-th lower record values, moments, product moments, inverse distributions.

1999 Mathematics Subject Classiffication: 62E10, 60E99.
