Abstract

In a recent paper, Mazucheli et al. (2019) introduced the unit-Gompertz (UG) distribution and studied some of its properties. It is a continuous distribution with bounded support, and hence may be useful for modelling life-Time phenomena. We present counter-examples to point out some subtle errors in theirwork, and subsequently correct them. We also look at some other interesting properties of this new distribution. Further, we also study some important reliability measures and consider some stochastic orderings associated with this new distribution.
