Özet

In this article, we propose a mixture of extended exponential-geometric distributions to model heterogeneous survival data. Various properties of the proposed mixture of extended exponential-geometric distributions are discussed. Maximum likelihood estimations of the parameters are obtained by using the EM algorithm. Illustrative examples based on real data are also given.
