Abstract

Recently, an alternative measure of uncertainty called extropy is proposed by Lad et al. [12]. The extropy is a dual of entropy which has been considered by researchers. In this article, we introduce an alternative measure of uncertainty of random variable which we call it cumulative residual extropy. This measure is based on the cumulative distribution function F. Some properties of the proposed measure, such as its estimation and applications, are studied. Finally, some numerical examples for illustrating the theory are included.
