Peakedness and peakedness ordering
(Elsevier, 20120510)The peakedness of a random variable (RV) X about a point a is defined by . A RV X is said to be less peaked about a than a RV Y about b, denoted by X≤pkd(a,b)Y, if P(X−a≤x)≤P(Y−b≤x) for all x≥0, i.e., X−a is ... 
Peakedness and peakedness ordering in symmetric distributions
(Elsevier Inc., 200904)There are many ways to measure the dispersion of a random variable. One such method uses the concept of peakedness. If the random variable X is symmetric about a point , then Birnbaum [Z.W. Birnbaum, On random variables ...
