Method of interpolation and collocation of power series approximate solution was used as the basis function to generate the continuous hybrid linear multistep method, which was then evaluated at non-interpolating points to give a continuous block method. The discrete block method was recovered when the continuous block was evaluated at all step points. The basic properties of the methods were investigated and said to be converge. The developed four-step method is applied to solve fourth derivative problems of ordinary differential equations from the numerical results obtained; it is observed that the developed method gives better approximation than the existing method compared with.</p> Raymond, Dominic Skwame, Yusuf Adiku, Lydia ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2021-04-08 2021-04-08 1 10 10.9734/jamcs/2021/v36i330343 Bayesian Estimation and Prediction Based on Constant Stress-Partially Accelerated Life Testing for Topp Leone-Inverted Kumaraswamy Distribution <p>Accelerated life testing or partially accelerated life tests is very important in life testing experiments because it saves time and cost. Partially accelerated life tests are used when the data obtained from accelerated life tests cannot be extrapolated to usual conditions. This paper proposes, constant–stress partially accelerated life test using Type II censored samples, assuming that the lifetime of items under usual condition have the Topp Leone-inverted Kumaraswamy distribution. The Bayes estimators for the parameters, acceleration factor, reliability and hazard rate function are obtained. Bayes estimators based on informative priors is derived under the balanced square error loss function as a symmetric loss function and balanced linear exponential loss function as an asymmetric loss function. Also, Bayesian prediction (point and bounds) is considered for a future observation based on Type-II censored under two samples prediction. Numerical studies are given and some interesting comparisons are presented to illustrate the theoretical results. Moreover, the results are applied to real data sets.</p> G. R. Al-Dayian A. A.

The predictor can be either a point or an interval predictor. This paper focuses on predicting the future observations from the modified Topp-Leone Chen distribution based on progressive Type-II censored scheme. The two-sample prediction is applied to obtain the maximum likelihood, Bayesian and E-Bayesian prediction (point and interval) for future order statistics. The Bayesian and E-Bayesian predictors are considered based on two different loss functions, the balanced squared error loss function; as a symmetric loss function and balanced linear exponential loss function; as an asymmetric loss function. The predictors are obtained based on conjugate gamma prior and uniform hyperprior distributions. A numerical example is provided to illustrate the theoretical results and an application using real data sets are used to demonstrate how the results can be used in practice.</p> G. R. AL-Dayian A.
