Abstract: This paper studies stochastic comparisons on the finite α-mixture models proposed in Asadi et al. (2019). Sufficient conditions on the underlying distribution parameters and the mixing probabilities are established for the comparisons of different α-mixtures of survival or distribution functions with respect to the usual stochastic order and the (reversed) hazard rate order, respectively. Several examples are also presented to illustrate the theoretical findings.
