Generalized residual entropy function and its applications

Mirza Abdul Khalique Baig, Javid Gani Dar


Shannon’s entropy plays an important role in the context of the information theory. Since, this entropy is not applicable to a system which has survived for some unit of time. So, the concept of residual entropy was developed. In this paper, we study generalized information measure for residual life time distributions and characterize some life time models based on this measure. Also, a new classes of life time distributions are defined.
