A note on some properties of a skew-normal density Scholarly Edition uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • The sum of two independent random variables with normal and half normal densities has a skew-normal density (Azzalini, 1985). In this note we show that this skew-normal density satisfies all assumptions required in establishing the asymptotic properties of the estimators discussed in Martins-Filho and Yao (2010).
