Objectives: In recent years, characterization of any distribution has become important in the field of probability distribution.The objective of the study is to characterize the power function distribution to see its usefulness under different real life situations such as Engineering and medical sciences. Methods: The study proposed the characterization of Power function distribution based on mean inactivity times (MIT), mean residual function (MRF), conditional moments, conditional variance (CV), doubly truncated mean (DTM), incomplete moments and reverse hazard function. Findings:We have characterized the power function distribution using different method, and conclude that thesufficient and necessary conditions of different methods mentioned above meet the results of Power function distribution. Application: Power function distribution has wide applicability in the field of Engineering. The findings of the paper may help the Engineers to know more about the Power function distribution.
Keywords: Characterization; mean inactivity time; mean residual function; power function distribution
