We provide a new stochastic representation for a Kumaraswamy random variable with arbitrary non-negative parameters. The representation is in terms of maxima and minima of independent distributed standard uniform components and extends a similar representation for integer-valued parameters.
The result is further extended for generalized classes of distributions obtained from a “base” distribution function Fviz.G(x) = H(F(x)), where H is the CDF of Kumaraswamy distribution.
