Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the ordering properties of sample ranges arising from multiple-outlier exponential and proportional hazard rate (PHR) models. The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, sufficient conditions on the parameter vectors are provided for the reversed hazard rate order and the usual stochastic order between the sample ranges arising from multiple-outlier exponential models with common sample size. Next, stochastic comparisons are separately carried out for sample ranges arising from multiple-outlier exponential and PHR models with different sample sizes as well as different hazard rates. Some numerical examples are also presented to illustrate the results established here.
