Roseli Aparecida LEANDRO[1]

§    ABSTRACT : In this paper, we present a generation procedure for a very special bivariate lifetimes distribution : the Block & Basu exponential distribution. This model should have a special simulation procedure, since the marginal distributions are not exponentially distributed. We also present an illustrative example.

§    KEYWORDS : Block & Basu exponential distribution; generation of bivariate lifetime dada.
